In search of human nature : the decline and revival of Darwinism in American social thought / Carl N. Degler
- New York : Oxford University Press, 1991
Includes bibliographical references (pages 351-383) and index
Now, with In Search of Human Nature, Degler turns to perhaps his largest subject yet, a sweeping history of the impact of Darwinism (and biological research) on our understanding of human nature, providing a fascinating overview of the social sciences in the last one hundred years. What kind of animal is homo sapiens and how did we come to be this way? In this wide ranging history, Carl Degler traces our attempts over the last century to answer these questions. In doing so, he has produced a volume that will fascinate anyone curious about the nature of human beings. - Jacket flap.
