Once again it's just mindblowingly shocking that Prof. Kehoe does not even mention the most basic reason why humans form relationships: To give birth to and raise children, or in other words: To pass on your genes. Instead of this the main reason that we form relationships is to fulfill our need to know ourselves? Oh come on... Don't get me wrong, many things that Prof. Kehoe teaches are useful and makes sense. But on the other hand he leaves out a big part of what drives human behavior. Somehow it seems that he does not like some biologic realities such as evolution.
