"It's really incredible when you think about it. Here we are well into the 21st century and we are still fighting over the role of nature and nurture in human development. And it isn't even a new fight, it's not even a twentieth century fight, it actually goes back to the nineteenth century and probably even before that. So why is it that we can't get this question answered and move on to a new one? Is it because we haven't yet gotten the necessary data to make a conclusion one way or the other? Do we not yet have a powerful enough computer to sort everything out? Have we not identified the best method and statistics to collect and analysis the relevant data? One answer to these questions is of course "yes" to all these possibilities but there is also another possibility. It may also be that we are having trouble coming up with the answer because we continue to ask the wrong question"--,Provided by publisher.
