One day there may well be cures for all manner of illnesses that will be due to our deeper understanding of the way genes work. What there will never be is a genetic explanation for racial diffences. That is because such racial differences simply don't exist. Not only does this book show that genetic explanations for racial differences are just so much pseudo-scientific rubbish, but it also explains, in remarkably simple language, some of the problems with linking 'causes' with 'effects'. The description of the radio here is something I will never forget. This is a terribly important book and one that ought to be read by more people.

  2. I needed these authors at that stage of my intellectual life when I was caught in the toils of sociobiology and evolutionary psychology dismal years of spiritual depression or oppression But I didn t have then, to locate alternate ideas, and I m not of scientific background, to find my way around So I bought this secondhand a couple of decades too late I find it unreadable now It s far too politicised, from the calm waters I am since in Biology is, of course, ideology their slogan and title of a [...]


  3. Read this many years ago The entire book is pretty much an answer to too much sociobiology and genetic determinism in some scientific circles at the time Well, their enemies seem to have survived them Nature vs nurture seems to still be going on full steam, with folks on both sides and many in the middle These are the nurture guys But mostly what I remember about the book was the vehement attacks on the purists on the genetic side What they re saying is largely true there is a danger to too muc [...]

  5. That scientists like these authors exist scares me way than all Donald Trumps of the world Even scarier is the fact that their likes seem to be a majority in academia Science should be that rock you can always cling to, no matter how wobbly it can be at times Well, apparently not People calling themselves scientists are too often dishonoring all scientific tenets The high raiting the book got is disheartening The entire premise is explicitly biased and politically motivated they don t even try [...]


  6. Not in Our Genes offers a penetrating critique of certain assumptions we have about how much of who we are is determined by our genetics This book also examines how our understanding of genetics has been molded by certain ideologies, and perpetuated through deeply flawed studies and misinformation to serve those ideologies This is an academic work, and the discussions of biological determinism often assume the reader can handle some philosophical terminology the authors don t have space to expla [...]


  7. This was compulsory reading for my psychology degree at the time and one of the texts that transformed my thinking It was a great juxtaposition to biological determinism and although I am now, funnily enough, a fan of Steven Pinker I cannot bear to part with this book in case I need reminding of some of their brilliant argument.


  8. A really important book for anyone that thinks the socio politico economic status quo is based on innate biological factors This is the antidote to sociobiology


  9. Fantastic book, challenging the claims of sociobiology and IQ studies head on and highlighting the political aspects of science that claims to be objective but is as politicised as hell
