`Nature` and `Nurture` (genetics and societal forces) are the two faces of the determinism coin.
I have just finished reading (listening to) the second book in the Stieg Larsson series featuring Lisbeth Salander (the girl with the dragon tattoo).
It looks like it is heading for a court-case in book three.
The story from book two –
Lisbeth’s father is a defected Russian, who was two main things –
1. Very useful to the Swedish Government.
2. A brute who beat (eventually to death) Lisbeth’s mother.
To hide the status of the father, the Swedish Government put Lisbeth away in an asylum when she was 12 (after she attacked her father).
Lisbeth has some sort of `Asperger Syndrome` which makes her good at maths, but not so hot at chatting with people.
Lisbeth was eventually put with a Guardian … who raped her.
Now, should there be a court-case about any `wrong-doing` she may get up to … her `soul` will be put on trial for not controlling her actions.
