This groundbreaking study shows that sociobiology and evolutionary psychology were undergoing rapid development in the early twentieth century, at a time when many of the early researchers in these sciences were also eugenicists. Aaron Gillette tracks the developments in these fields and explains how, with the rise of behaviorism and the reaction against eugenics in the 1930s, any scientific claims that behavior might be influenced by heredity were subsequently suppressed for ideological reasons.
From the Publisher:
Gillette shows that the sciences of sociobiology and evolutionary psychology were undergoing rapid development in the early twentieth century. However, many of the early researchers in these sciences were also eugenicists. With the rise of behaviorism and the reaction against eugenics in the 1930s, any scientific claims that behavior might be influenced by heredity were suppressed for ideological reasons.
