When Saying “Sorry” Isn’t Enough: Is Some Suicidal Behavior a Costly Signal of Apology?
TLDR
Results provided mixed support for the hypothesis that some instances of suicidal behavior function to send a costly signal of apology to those harmed by a transgression, as well as supporting the Costly Apology Model.
Ethological Problems with the Interpersonal Theory of Suicide.
Joiner and colleagues' Interpersonal Theory of Suicide (IPTS), a prominent "desire-capability" model of suicide-based on the common-sense idea that people take their own lives because they want to,
Choosing Death Over Survival: A Need to Identify Evolutionary Mechanisms Underlying Human Suicide
TLDR
It is speculated that explorations of probable proximate explanations of suicide which stresses the need to diffuse attention paid to fitness consequences of the act alone are needed in order to build a robust and comprehensive evolutionary theory of human suicide.
SUICIDE AND HUMAN SACRIFICE ; SACRIFICIAL VICTIM HYPOTHESIS ON THE EVOLUTIONARY ORIGINS OF SUICIDE
Suicide is widespread amongst humans, unique to our species, but difficult to reconcile with natural selection. This paper links the evolutionary origins of suicide to the archaic, but once
A test of four evolutionary hypotheses of pregnancy food cravings: evidence for the social bargaining model
TLDR
Findings reveal that in resource-scarce and pathogen-dense environments, cravings might target teratogenic items that signal a need for increased social support, suggesting that pregnant women crave dangerous foods when experiencing heightened social pressures.
Life-History Factors Influence Teenagers’ Suicidal Ideation: A Model Selection Analysis of the Canadian National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth

TLDR
The developmental and environmental correlates of reported suicidal ideation at age 15 are examined and a new evolutionary model of suicidality based on life history trade-offs and hypothesized accompanying modulations of cognition is developed.
Dying for the group: Towards a general theory of extreme self-sacrifice
TLDR
This paper attempts to integrate many of these factors into a single overarching theory based on several decades of collaborative research with a range of special populations, from tribes in Papua New Guinea to Libyan insurgents and from Muslim fundamentalists in Indonesia to Brazilian football hooligans.

For more than a hundred years, suicide researchers have tried to identify conditions that predictably lead people to take their own lives. I call these supposed conditions suigiston, and draw
Psychological Aposematism: An Evolutionary Analysis of Suicide
  • J. Wiley

  • 2020
TLDR
A novel evolutionary explanation of suicide in humans is provided by comparing it with aposematism in insects, conveying an evolutionary advantage to the phenotypic expression of suicidal behavior in low-fitness contexts.
Adaptive and non-adaptive models of depression: A comparison using register data on antidepressant medication during divorce
TLDR
The evolutionary model was the most detailed mechanistic description of the divorce-depression link among the models, and the best fit in terms of predicted curvature; thus, it offers most rigorous hypotheses for further study.

TLDR
The rapid change that has taken place in Truk since World War II undoubtedly has a bearing on the suicide epidemic, and the various cultural forces that contribute to the attractiveness of suicide among Trukese males are discussed.
The interpersonal theory of suicide.
TLDR
The theory is proposed that the most dangerous form of suicidal desire is caused by the simultaneous presence of two interpersonal constructs-thwarted belongingness and perceived burdensomeness (and hopelessness about these states)-and further that the capability to engage in suicidal behavior is separate from the desire to engageIn suicidal behavior.

Suicidal behaviour. An attempt to modify the environment. Part IV.
TLDR
Sex and all personal and social factors reviewed were of little significance in the incidence of suicidal attempts and in the methods employed in their execution and this seems to support the hypothesis that in many cases suicidal behaviour is in fact an attempt to modify the environment to the patient's benefit.

Suicide among Animals: A Review of Evidence

TLDR
Evidence on suicidal behavior among animals is analyzed to discover analogies with human suicidal behavior, and sparse evidence supports some resemblance between the self-endangering behavior observed in the animal kingdom, particularly in animals held in captivity or put under pressure by environmental challenges, and suicidalbehavior among humans.
