Armed with extraordinary new discoveries about our genes,
acclaimed science writer Matt Ridley turns his attention to the
nature-versus-nurture debate in a thoughtful book about the roots
of human behavior.
Ridley recounts the hundred years' war between the partisans of
nature and nurture to explain how this paradoxical creature, the
human being, can be simultaneously free-willed and motivated by
instinct and culture. With the decoding of the human genome, we now
know that genes not only predetermine the broad structure of the
brain, they also absorb formative experiences, react to social
cues, and even run memory. They are consequences as well as causes
of the will.
