The relative importance of nature (genetics) and nurture (behavior and training) in the development of mankind was brought to the forefront of investigation by Margaret Mead. We will continue our discussion of “Why mankind is so successful?” by reading and discussing the book The Developing Genome: An Introduction to Behavioral Epigenetics, by David S. Moore.
