Not so I've noticed.
I would agree that the human mind -- or for that matter, personality,
and either the illusion or reality of free willl -- doesn't have a really
good evolutionary explanation. It just screws too many things up that
would be much simpler if we were "mindless" genetic & culutral beings.
Why all this baggage?
Sure, one could argue -functional- skills are useful. I suppose the
trickiest part is language. Perhaps language is the most important
evolutionary aspect of being human. And perhaps one could argue that the
existence of language naturally leads to self-awareness, and hence
psychological complexity. Still, it seems like there'd be an easier way
to accomplish that without having to create Camus and Freud.
