Heritability

Bailey, R. C. (1997). Hereditarian scientific fallacies. Genetica, 99(2/3), 125–133.doi:10.1023/a:1018395229872
Comment: This is the best piece out of all of these, so if you are just reading one I recommend this one. Goes over developmental resources and the 5 fallacies underlying hereditarian thought.

Comment: These last three are part of the infamous crimonology debate on the validity of heritability studies within the field. They critique the interpretation of heritability as environment vs genetic influence & the biasing of heritability studies.

Comment: Classic Lewontin article.

Comment: Demonstrative of the limited use of heritability as an explanatory mechanism for ontogeny/adaptation. The fact that heritability doesn’t ‘rule out’ rapid changes in phenotypes is indicative that it doesn’t measure some underlying ‘genetic contribution’

Comment: This is from within the field of behavioral genetics and is a view that Turkheimer espouses to this day.
