In this book, Daniel Soutullo analyzes the importance of biology in the spectrum of human issues. The author develops a deep criticism of sociobiology, a theory which explains the social behaviours of humans through biology, beginning with the original theory and continuing through recent developments. The relation between biological evolution, cultural changes and the development of moral conduct as a distinctive human characteristic are the focus of this investigation.
