  • Human Nature and Human Values

  • The topic of this course is the influence of biology on human social and political behavior. It is a basic introduction to a relatively new field in the social and political sciences. This field was originally called sociobiology when it was first proposed in the 1970s. It is today often referred to under such titles as evolutionary psychology, human ethology, or biopolitics. The basic premise of the field is that human behavior is deeply influenced by biology, and that one can learn many important things about human societies by studying the evolution of human and non-human animals.
