Chapter 30: The crystal ball: biology, political science and biopolitics
We address three topics: first, advances in biology which might have relevance for political science. Second, the extent to which political science is likely to expand its horizons to include biological influences on political behavior, and the possible consequences for the discipline of that acceptance. Third, the implications of an evolutionary perspective for governments in general, and for democracies in particular.
