The early foundations of
criminological theories based upon biological explanations can be traced back
to the early 1800s when the concept of phrenology was introduced. More recent
biological explanations for deviant behavior have posited that genetics are a
driving force. Discuss the evolution of criminological theories that are based
upon biological causes for deviant behavior. Identify and explain the core
concepts of at least three different biological theories for deviance. Evaluate
whether any of the biological theories provide an accurate explanation for an
individual’s decision to participate in deviant behavior.
