Beyond Human Nature

Thursday, January 10, 2013

Jesse Prinz discusses how nurture can supplement and supplant nature, allowing us to be influenced by experience and culture rather than just by our DNA. Drawing on cutting-edge research in neuroscience, psychology, and anthropology in his book Beyond Human Nature, Prinz shows that we can’t always blame mental illness or addiction on our genes, and that societal factors shape gender differences in cognitive ability and sexual behavior.
