Book Description
In February 2001 it was announced that the genome contains not 100,000 genes as originally expected but only 300,000. this startling revision led some scientists to concludes that there are simply not enough human genes to account for all the different ways people behave; we must be made by nurture, not nature, Yet again biology was to be stretched on the procrustean bed of nature nurture debate. Acclaimed science writer Matt Ridley argues that the margining truth is far more interesting than this myth. Nurture depends on genes, too, and agents need nurture, 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.
