Biology vs. Learning

(Josh Cohen) #1

I heard most of this show on the radio and thought it was interesting: Hardwired.


How much of who we are is biology? How much is learned? And how much can we change? This hour, TED speakers on how genes and experience collaborate — and compete — to make us who we are.

Robert Sapolsky is interesting. He has a human biology course on YouTube, and I have two of his books on my reading list. (Behave and Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers)
