Wilson's 1975 book on the subject, which aimed to `codify sociobiology into a branch of evolutionary biology' (Lewontin and Rose, 1984) and had a vision of neurobiologists and sociobiologists as the new leaders of a planned society of the future.

CORPORATE BODIES AND PLASTIC BODIES During the academic movement from the naturalistic to the socially constructed body, `western' societies' relationship to and construction of the body have also altered.
