comes from what they call nature vs. nurture. This is when we try and figure out if the behavior

question on which one has more influences in an individual. But we know that both genetics and
environment play an important role in a person development and they both are needed.
Psychology involved into science because psychology uses scientific methods in order to

minds. In (1859) Charles Darwin demonstrated in the idea that genetics and evolution play a role
influencing human behavior through natural selection. Theorists in the biological perspective
who study behavioral genomics consider how genes affect behavior. It has been said that there
are a lot of different types of perspectives and by the research I have read over a number of them.
But out of all of the perspectives none of them has explanatory powers over the next. They all
mean something extremely important in the knowledge of how the human behavior works (UOP
