Behavioral Genetics site

The American Association for the Advancement of Science has a very good Behavioral Genetics site.

It includes the online book:

BEHAVIORAL GENETICS: An introduction to how genes and environments interact through development to shape differences in mood, personality, and intelligence


Here is a summary of the Behavioral Genetics Project's goals which includes:

"The project is examining the extent to which behavioral genetics casts new light on enduring ethical and social questions and problems. Two large, interrelated categories capture the relevant issues: (i) identity and responsibility and (ii) equality and justice. How does behavioral genetics challenge some conceptions of human nature and personal identity? What are the implications for freedom and responsibility? How does behavioral genetics challenge some conceptions of equality? And what are the implications for social justice?"
