The section on Evolution, Biology and Society is designed to improve dialogue between sociology and the biological sciences. Of particular concern is the interaction between material and social environments with biological processes and evolved predispositions common to all humans. The section creates a community of scholars within sociology who can critique and develop new research in the area.

Specific topics of interest to those in the section include the implications of biology, evolutionary biology and neurobiology for human behavior, the relationship between biochemical and hormonal processes and behavior, the consequences of evolved psychological predispositions for social processes, primatology, hominid evolution as it affects human nature, stage-model evolution, world systems dynamics, and human ecology.
