Evolutionary psychology is a new emerging paradigm in cognitive science and cognitive psychology. The basic question that is formulated by the new perspective is how and why distinct cognitive processes have evolved. Its basic assumptions are the modularity of mind hypothesis and the adaptive function of evolved modules. The aim of this article is to present existing analyses and research on memory from the evolutionary perspective: Sherry and Schacter's (1987) evolutionary explanation of memory systems, and Klein and associates' hypothesis of co-evolution of memory systems, search engines, and decision rules (Klein et al., 2002).
