Marxism and human sociobiology: A comparative study from the perspective of modern socialist economic reforms [Book Review]
Biology and Philosophy 2 (4):463-474 (1987)
|Abstract||Modern socialist economic reforms which center on the establishment of a commodity based economic system, demand a reconsideration of human nature. Marxism and human sociobiology give different answers to questions about human nature, but neither is complete in itself. It seems timely, therefore, to suggest that a combination of biological understanding with a Marxist-based social understanding would produce a more adequate notion of human nature, thereby helping us to resolve a number of problems posed by reforms currently taking place in socialist countries. We might also hope to face new challenges posed in the future.|
