The International Society for Human Ethology (ISHE) promotes ethological perspectives in the scientific study of humans worldwide. We aim to achieve this goal through:

  • Encouraging empirical research in the field of human behavior, using the full range of methods developed in biology and the human behavioral sciences, and operating within the conceptual framework provided by evolutionary theory.
  • Promoting the exchange of ethological knowledge and opinions with the other empirical sciences of human behavior.

We administer our funds in order to pursue these goals.
