Biología, personalidad y delincuencia

El principal propósito de este trabajo es presentar una reflexión a partir de las evidencias empíricas disponibles que relacionan factores genéticos, biológicos y determinadas características de personalidad con conductas antisociales y/o delictivas. La reflexión sobre la vía explicativa que conduce desde los genes y otros factores biológicos a la conformación de estructuras de personalidad que, a su vez, configuran organismos con patrones de interacción con el entorno proclives a la aparición de conductas antisociales y/o delictivas. El análisis enfatiza la necesidad de evitar los reduccionismos deterministas en el campo y aboga por la elaboración de perspectivas integradoras.

Biology, personality and criminality. The main aim of this work is to discuss the available empirical evidence relating genetic, biological and personality factors with antisocial and/or criminal behavior. This discussion underlines the explanatory path bridging genes and other biological factors with personality structures which, finally, through patterns of interaction with the environment, give place to antisocial and/or criminal behavior. This analysis emphasized the need to avoid determinist reductionisms, and claims for the elaboration of integrative perspectives.

El hombre es un ser universal: por ello sus capacidades se convierten al mismo tiempo en necesidades y, a la inversa, sus necesidades en capacidades.
