The 1990 CBC Massey Lectures: Biology As Ideology

The Massey Lectures have been an annual event on CBC Radio for past twenty-nine years. 1990 lecture was presented by distinguished evolutionary biologist Richard C. Lewontin. In Biology as Ideology (also it was published as a book) Lewontin challenges Darwin's adaptionist view in evolution, claims that far from being objective science reflects the dominant ideology and discusses on an ideological bias in modern biology that our sickness and health, our poverty and wealth and the very structure of the society which we live is ultimately coded in our DNA.
