3.1 Competing explanations of social problems

If we can agree that poverty is a social problem, we are led to another question: what sort of social problem is it? For some, it is a social problem because people should not be poor: it involves social injustice. For others, poverty is a social problem because poor people behave badly (or bring up children poorly): it involves social disorder.

4 Other influences on evolution

One of the crucial conditions for natural selection to occur is that there must be variation. However, it is extremely important to appreciate that natural selection does not itself cause that variation; it simply acts on existing variation. The processes that do bring about variation are therefore major components of evolution. The most important of these processes, because it is really the ultimate source of all variation, is mutation. A mutation is an alteration in the geneti
