Summary:
"One of the most important facts about human beings is that they are not all alike. "The hereditary endowment which each of us has," the authors say, "is strictly his own, not present in anybody else, unprecedented in the past, and almost certainly not repeatable in the future." Yet, if we are to survive, we must live in a world composed not only of differing individuals, but of differing groups. And if we are to adjust ourselves to such a world, the authors believe, we must understand what such differences mean, how they arise, how lasting they are likely to be, which of them are likely to determine our individual and group destinies. In particular, they say, we need to know what differences are inborn and permanent, which result from the kind of upbringing and education people receive--from conditions which we can change. In their book, Professors Dunn and Dobzhansky sort out the facts, and present the case of "nature and nurture," in clear, simple, thoroughly scientific terms"--Book.
