About this book

Account of the `nature-nurture' debate, explaining it as part of a clash of convictions about science and its social role. Professor Segerstrale argues that the controversy can be seen as part of two continuing academic discussions: one about the nature of science and its social role; the other about the status of tentative scientific knowledge in socially sensitive fields, such as the biology of human behaviour.
