Abstract

Certain principles underlying the papers by Titus-Ernstoff et al. and Sandberg et al. may benefit from further comment. It is widely believed by social scientists that human behavior is shaped exclusively by social conditioning. More specifically, differences in the behavior of the sexes are seen as exclusively a “social construction,” designed uniquely by each society, and with no biological foundation.
