It is increasingly apparent that social scientists need to engage the rapidly accumulating developments in human genetics research. This imperative has been advanced by several decades of provocative reports from behavioral genetics, enormous media attention given to the Human Genome Project, the increasing availability of genetic testing to assess individuals’ risk for myriad illnesses, and Cited by: The SPI, created in collaboration with Scott Stern of MIT and the nonprofit Social Progress Imperative, measures the performance of countries on various dimensions of social and environmental performance.

It shows that his enquiry was larger and more systematic than previously by: Social progress means, therefore, greater harmony among the members of a group.
