What is nature versus nurture?
To the best of my knowledge in the context of predictive astrology, ‘nature’ refers to what ancestral background is present; genetic predisposition or as some would say, inherent karma.
A person’s upbringing is the usual description of the ‘nurture’ aspect.
According to wikipedia:
The nature versus nurture debate concerns the relative importance of an individual’s innate qualities versus personal experience in determining or causing individual differences in physical and behavioral traits.
As to the physical differences, we know these to be the genetically inherited characteristics like physical appearance, colour of our hair, our build and predispositions to certain health problems etc.
As to inherited behavioural traits, the ancient debate of nature versus nurture has influenced psychologists to take interest in criminology. In studying criminal behavior, many psychologists and scientists have devised theories meant to explain deviant characteristics.
The major debate in these theories centers on the concept of genetic makeup and criminal activity. While some theorists believe that the environment influences criminal behavior, others hold to the idea of criminals having inherent characteristics that make them menaces in society; inherited criminal characteristics theory is founded on the latter belief.
