Works such as The Bell Curve imply that any biosocial approach to social science is necessarily Social Darwinist or reactionary. Toward a Biocritical Sociology suggests the opposite: a biosocial sociology stressing species commonalities opens a site for a distinctively critical social science discourse. Neuhaus shows the relevance of current research in ethology, sociobiology, and evolutionary ethics for the development of a critical biosocial sociology. In developing his own «biocritical» approach, Neuhaus argues that debates over social problems, as well as controversies surrounding the communitarian analyses of Robert Bellah, Amitai Etzioni and Alasdair MacIntyre, may be helpfully analyzed and conceptually unpacked by making use of a critical biosocial perspective.
