Transcript of L3: Lesson 5 - Nature vs Nurture

Nature vs Nurture The nature versus nurture debate focuses on the argument on whether:

We are born the way we are i.e. People are born evil hence why they commit crime,
The way we are brought up and our surroundings make us the way we are i.e. This child is aggressive because he was brought up in an aggressive environment. Nature versus nurture debate

The alternative to determinism is the belief that people can take control of their own lives through the choices they make (free will),
Some people believe that everything is fixed by nature or nurture or that everything is a matter of choice,
However, you must take into consideration that human life course involves an interaction of nature, nurture and the decisions and choices that people make. Choice and interaction Some aspects of development such as the ability to speak a first language are thought to be due to an inbuilt genetic process,
Children naturally become interested in sounds and signs that they see around them and the ability to speak unfolds,
The impact of the environment on this ability is crucial as the learned language or communication method is the one used within the environment,
Thus the environment always interacts with a person’s genetic inheritance. Maturation theory Genes provide the instructions for structuring amino acids which in turn influence the proteins within our body cells thus programming chemical basis of our biology,
Our body shape, size as well as our behaviour depend on the interaction of our biology with broader environmental,
A human being is the result of the interaction of genes (biological programming) and the environmental influences they are exposed to. Biological programming HOMOSEXUALITY NATURE
