4062 Richard Lewontin
The 'Threads' thread over in /v/ contained a bit of discussion of human nature, evolutionary psychology and what it means for society (as well as its possible breakdown).

I wanted to make a post there a dew days ago but found myself just referring back to Richard Lewontin, who puts it a hell of a lot better than I do. There's a series of lectures of his up on YouTube which I think presents a very convincing argument as to why we should be cautious about using reasoning that appears to be 'biological' or 'scientific' in explaining/predicting complex human behaviours.

Things really start picking up around lecture 3, and I believe the topic of human nature is directly addressed in lecture 4. I can't recommend this highly enough to anyone who posted in that little debate. First lecture embedded:

I'll give it a listen when I get the chance OP. Going by what you describe he is outlining a position that I've seen often in social science where religion is replaced with modern superstitions and simplifications although I'm usually averse to the methodological implications.

I guess its also a sign of the year we've had that when I saw the name in the title I assumed him to be another cultural icon that had been lost.
