(p.293) 12 Biology and the Nature of Females
In Search of Human Nature

Carl N. Degler

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines social scientists' study of the influence of biology and the nature of females in terms of differences in human behavior. One of those who took a look at how physiological differences between men and women might affect behavior was Alice Rossi in 1965. Rossi measured the impact that biological ideas have had upon social scientists and suggested that though women and men were different physiologically they were interchangeable socially.

Keywords:   human behavior, biology, sexual differences, men and women, physiological differences, Alice Rossi
