Sociobiology? Biological factors do influence our behaviour, but sociobiologist, like evolutionary behaviourists, are stretching the influence of biological forces on social behaviour of humans way beyond the breaking point. Neither can account for the many varieties of social systems, nor the fact that they have on average become less violent over the past several millennia.
