Contemporary scientific guidance on the relationship between male and femal
A previous article discussed the ethical guidance given by contemporary popular books and articles on the relationship between men and women. The authority for Christians of such books (based on an evolutionist biology and worldview) was questioned. No answer was, however, provided on the important and difficult question whether and, if so, to what extent human biology influences or even determines one’s ethical behaviour. Since many current books on sexual morality are based on empirical socio-biological research, this article takes a critical look at this scientific discipline. A Christian- philosophical alternative on the issue of human sexuality and gender will conclude this, as well as the previous article.
