The environment shaping human behavior
It seems to me, that the debate over Nature vs Nurture is becoming increasingly superfluous to our understanding about human behavior - individually and collectively, thus society-, because of the advancements in grasping the idea, that environment shapes human behavior.
The increasing studies in human behavior are gaining momentum in the advancement of its understanding, stating that despite having a propensity, for perhaps violence, it is the environment that is the trigger for the person we will grow up to be (no 'good' and 'bad' people). The implications of this understanding, would perhaps entice us to look deeper into the social paradigm to have a broader view over the values we pick up from the surrounding variables.
What are your takes on this issue? What shapes human behavior in your opinion? Looking forward to hearing some in-depth arguments on the subject.
