Scot Yenor Published in Clairmont Review of Books

Scott Yenor, Political Science, studio portraitScott Yenor, professor in the Political Science Department at Boise State University, has published a thought-provoking article entitled “Up from Polygamy” in the Clairmont Review of Books.
“Most animals and most cultures are, according to Barash, polygamous. The “ghosts of polygamy” survives in our genes. Western peoples, especially, have embraced monogamy. Polygamy leads to a war within and between the sexes, while monogamy leads to “shared interests,” “male-female equality and mutual flourishing.” The arc of biological and cultural evolution bends toward monogamy.”
