Abstract

"The term, "social determinism", is a rather unfortunate designation for the absolute conditioning of human character by the aggregate of biologic and social influences...The central idea of this positivistic interpretation is that man, along with all other organic things, is the product of hereditary accidence and environmental contacts, that his psychic and physical constitutions (if there be such differentiation) are fashioned to the minutest detail by circumstance, and that his thoughts and the chemic impulses of his nature appear precisely according to his character which he has no hand in making"--Introduction, page 2-3.
