A weathy married man in China is having an affair with a beautiful young women who sems primarily attracted to his financial status. At the same time, similar situations are occurring across other races and nations. Sociobiologists would say:
A) these behaviors are found in the human species but not in the animal kingdom
B)this is an adaptive function of what evolution has bred into each of us.
c) this is an adaptive behvior for the married men
D) this is a much too simplistic sterotype of sexual behavior
I believe the answer is D. I took a educated guess cause I could not find it directly in the book maybe it stated the abswer indirectly.
Here are some link you might find interesting. In some cultures it is not unusually for married men to have mistresses. Unfortunately it seems to e a sign of the time - lack of commitment and/or morals?
I agree with you -- D is the best answer.
Thanks for the site I will be checking that out. And yes I do think it is a commitment issue not much of a moral issue in some cases.
Knowing the basis of sociobiology, I would choose B.
