Abstract

This thesis aimed to explore whether evolutionary perspectives could improve our understanding of eating pathology, specifically anorexia nervosa. Literature review: A model of anorexia nervosa comprising evolutionary ideas was evaluated through a comprehensive literature review. Research report: Using a longitudinal design with a student population, the impact of social rank (measured through submissiveness and social comparison) and self-compassion on later eating attitudes was investigated.
