Nature vs. Nurture
Give some serious consideration to the topic or scenario before writing paper by answering; and, then, using the questions below as a guide, write a 300 word paper.
Which aspects of your self (or self-identity) do you attribute directly to your upbringing in a particular family, in a particular society, or in a particular neighborhood, city, or other environment?
Which do you attribute to “nature” (that is, to instincts and inherited characteristics)?
Which aspects of your self (if any) would you say are entirely your own, independent of other people and your biological nature? How do you know they were not influenced by something else?
Explain whether you identify your “self” with your Mind-only or with a Mind/Body combination.
