Determination of characteristics and boundaries of identity is often a starting inquiry point for social sciences, with a background of strong ideological argumentations and violent ethical and cultural challenges. Its social anchors, which Zygmunt Bauman considers presently indistinct and continuously redefined, could not make it appear more natural, predetermined, and more important not negotiable. However, this thesis, as the symmetric one of Neo-Darwinist matrix affirming how identity characteristics are guaranteed by biomolecular components, are objectionable, in light of controversial acquisitions matured in the fields of behavioral genetics and neurosciences.
