Sex Differences in Social Behavior: Are the Social Role and Evolutionary Explanations Compatible?
Archer, John
American Psychologist, v51 n9 p909-17 Sep 1996
Examines competing claims of two explanations of sex differences in social behavior, social role theory, and evolutionary psychology. Findings associated with social role theory are weighed against evolutionary explanations. It is suggested that evolutionary theory better accounts for the overall pattern of sex differences and for their origins. An approach is proposed to explain cross-cultural consistency in socialization patterns. (GR)
