The First Week of the New Semester, Yeah!

Heading toward my final courses for college, the last two mandatory subjects in criminology, __Psychological Explanations of Criminal Behaviour__ and __Sociological Explanations in Criminal Behaviour__ I kind of feel surreal and complacent because having gone through all of the second year courses, these final two seem so out of touch with the whole curriculum. I guess the high point of last night’s class was going though concepts in social theory: Reproductive Fitness, Selfishness and Kin Selection in light of what the characteristics of a Psychopath are, then diving into one concept called Cheater Theory, where by Psychopaths mimic non Psychopathic characteristics to pass on their genes based on Evolutionary Theories. Quite the concept from a Psychological point of view? I guess you could not completely rule out genetic predispositions compared to social and leaned, but even this is proof that as a social scientist, you never put all your eggs into one basket!

  1. Can I ask you why you chose a subject that has so many BIG words in it? 😆

  2. Well, believe it or not, there is a pun buried inside this post. This is a joke that I posted on the college criminology website the same day. I linked it to my website. Genes and Eggs???

  4. Yes, Lily, it does! The SPAM bots are not able to read any text or follow instruction that go beyond the standard “3 fields & a comment.” I have had not one bit of SPAM since, and I get to keep my comments turned on! Too bad about your unemployed state, I wish you well on the job quest.

  5. Help!
