NATURE VIA NURTURE Genes, Experience, and What Makes Us Human

by | Read by Matt Ridley

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

In the tradition of a PBS documentary, the author of the bestseller Genome explores how genetic programming interacts with experience to create the behavioral patterns of humans and other species. Science has found that particular experiences at the right times "switch on" certain genes, so there is constant interaction between genetics and life events. Ridley discusses this phenomenon in many species and cultures around the world, and he presents this fascinating material with great respect. With satisfying auditory pacing and texture, the author weaves controversial content into a wonderful intellectual narrative. T.W.
