David Loye, Riane Eisler's beloved husband and partner, died of Covid during the night of January 24, 2022. This was two days after they celebrated their 45th Anniversary.
Loye, psychologist, evolutionary systems scientist, and the author of many books, was also the Vice President & Co-Founder of the Center for Partnership Systems.
David's books focused on scientific subjects such as Darwin, moral evolution, evolution theory, history, prediction of the future, and social action. Loye also wrote books of adventure, travel, humor, children’s stories, poems, and love. Find all of his published works here.
To continue his legacy, the David Loye Memorial Fund was created to spread and further his vital research and writing on evolution, his pioneering recovery of what Darwin really said about humans, moral sensitivity, love, and more, including David's many books.

Loye spent his last thirty years focusing on evolution, moral sensitivity, and human survival. During that time Loye wrote about his groundbreaking discovery that Charles Darwin had a very different, still largely ignored, theory about human evolution: he emphasized the importance of culture, love, and morality in his book Descent of Man, which also foreshadowed much of today’ chaos, self-organizing, and nonlinear dynamics theories.
Of Loye’s book Darwin’s Lost Theory, eminent scientist Ervin Laszlo wrote "...everyone concerned with our understanding of evolution on this planet owes Loye a deep debt of gratitude...Dramatically changes our understanding of Darwin and of evolution itself." Among many others hailing the book as “of urgent importance to the intellectual discourse of the time,” the noted mathematician and chaos theorist Ralph Abraham wrote that “it corrects an oversight in the history of science which has swerved the modern world off its track. ... We urgently need this book, and we need it now.”
