The social sciences' rejection of human nature has impoverished the West's political culture. Radical ideologies feed on ignorance of human instincts for reproduction, family, and identity. Ignoring the vast knowledge accumulated by the disciplines of behavioural biology has led to maladaptive policy and doctrine. Effects include the colonization of Western societies by non-European immigration, the inverted ethnic hierarchies enforced by political correctness, and radical gender ideologies. The trend is evident in Australia, where university departments of sociology, cultural anthropology and political science are devoid of biologically-oriented courses.
This series of six articles, five originally published in Quadrant magazine from 2010 to 2012, examines that intellectual poverty in Australia. The focus is on irrationality in academic and media discussions of gender and ethnicity, including feminism, sex differences, national identity, ethno-cultural diversity, multiculturalism and immigration. The final chapter examines the sometimes controversial career of Hiram Caton, a prominent scholar who fought to introduce the sciences of human nature to the humanities and social studies in Australia.
