In this unit, we looked at the biological theories of crime. For this scholarly activity, you will explain four theories of crime from Chapters 3 and 4. Some of the biological theories focus on internal factors, such as low blood sugar, hormonal differences, and atavistic features.
In your explanation of each theory, include responses to the following items:
- Explain the basic concepts of the theory.
- How is the theory related to crime?
- Do you personally feel that the theory is acceptable as a potential reason for crime? Explain your answer.
- Is there research to substantiate this theory?
In accordance with APA style, format your scholarly activity with level one headings for each theory, and then answer the questions pertaining to that theory.
Your scholarly activity (a combination of all four theories) must be two pages in length, not counting the title and reference pages. You are required to use at least one outside source; however, you may need to use more in order to successfully complete this assignment. All sources used, including the textbook, must be cited and referenced.
