A Norwegian television show by comedian Harald Eia has caused quite a bit of discussion in Scandinavia on nature versus nurture.
Generally, Scandinavia regards social constructionism as far more important than genetics and biology – but the episodes produced by Eia paint a different picture.
All kinds of phenomena are investigated in seven different episodes, with the main theme being that biology is far too important to be ignored, and very often a key determinant in predicting outcomes. Part one is about gender, so obviously that may be the most interesting one – but all of them are well worth watching.
The good part is that all seven episodes are now available online, with English subtitles. Here are the links:
