Donald David Hoffman is an American cognitive psychologist and popular science author. Stating natural selection is necessarily directed toward fitness payoffs and that organisms develop internal models of reality that increase these fitness payoffs. This means that organisms develop a perception of the world that is directed towards fitness, and not of reality. He is a professor in the Department of Cognitive Sciences at the University of California, Irvine.
