sociology’s greatest hits 2010-2019: #4 – the continuing battle over bio-sociology

What’s the relationship between biology and human behavior? Well, it’s complicated and sociology’s been working on this as well. Probably the most noted person is Gang Guo producing a parade of articles that link various bio markers to behaviors like drinking. Then, we had the mini-explosion of Jianbin Shiao’s Sociological Theory article on race and genetics. On the other side of things, folks like Dalton Conley, who retrained and earned a doctoral degree in biology, tells us that yes, genetics is a thing but it’s way more complicated than you might suspect.
