Summary

Exciting new developments in behavioral biology are creating an intellectual revolution in the study of human behavior and are causing social scientists to reassess the ways in which they approach their disciplines. This book examines how these new findings are likely to transform and shape anthropology, sociology, economics, and political science in the coming decade. The book begins with an overview of the rapidly changing relationship between biological and social studies. In successive sections, well-known social scientists, biologists, and philosophers address the theoretical challenges involved in incorporating material from sociobiology, ecology, genetics, and psychophysiology into their own disciplines’ approaches to the analysis of human behavior. The concluding chapters examine specific methodological problems and related issues.
