The Biology of Human Action
by Vernon Reynolds

An attempt to integrate all the human sciences. He tries to pay due respect to biological determinism and the role of ideas in motivating action. The book contains interesting information. His goal is admirable, but he admits we don't know enough yet to achieve it. The worst and least scientific part of the book is where he makes social policy recommendations (based on centralized coercion).

Year Read: 1985
