Genes, Cultures, and the Human ProspectBook - 2000
The Bell Curve, The Moral Animal, The Selfish Gene - these and a host of other books and articles have made a seemingly overwhelming case that our genes determine our behaviour. Now, a leading evolutionary biologist shows why most of those claims of genetic destiny cannot be true, and explains how the aguments often stem from a fundamental misunderstanding of evolution itself.
