Born That Way: Genes, Behavior, Personality
- Publish Date: 1998-06-09
- Binding: Hardcover
Sensibly not regarding the perennial nature-nurture debate as an either/or issue, nonspecialist Wright surveys the last half-century of research used to support the view that human behavior is more genetically than environmentally based. Provocative chapters address the chemistry of self, twin studies, stars of the new field, the short and happy life of the tabula rasa, the Jensen furor over race and IQ, and the possibility of a crime gene.
