The Decline of Men, and the Need for "Male Studies"
, the Charles
Darwin Professor of Anthropology at Rutgers University, is no stranger
to controversy. He has made a career out of "telling it like he sees
it" when he ventures to describe the biological roots of human social
behavior. In his Big Think interview
, Tiger suggests that the recent Great Recession was caused in part by
innate male aggression
. People get religion, he argues, because at a neurochemical level, believing in God makes them feel good
. He is suspicious of drugs like Ritalin because they essentially work to make male behavior more female-like
. He also calls for the establishment of "Male Studies
" as an academic discipline.
