The social sciences’ rejection of human nature has greatly reduced their ability to inform the West’s political culture. Ignoring the vast knowledge accumulated by the disciplines of behavioural biology has led to maladaptive policy and doctrine.

This is especially true 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.

This irrationality serves a mutually supportive role with leftist ideology, dominant in the universities since the 1960s. 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.
