Population Problems, a Cultural Interpretation

Excerpt

As sociology has found its place among the sciences and has been built into the college curriculum, it has gradually been weaned from a biological orientation and an economic determinism. The population field is, however, an exception. Although its teaching has been pre-empted by sociologists, its analyses have too often been couched in a contradictory framework of geographic, biological, and economic theory. It remains for the sociologist to orient this field of abundant data into a sociological frame of reference. Human social behavior is no longer understood primarily in terms of geographic, biological, instinctive, or other naturalistic laws, but rather in terms of sociocultural forces. Population phenomena have meaning only in terms of culture patterns.
