This paper investigates a few theories which together make up a new theory explaining criminality. This synthesized theory makes statements such as that behaviors and personalities are inherited and that a person should just accept it. The author illustrates how the importance lies in the combination of all the theories taught previously.

From the Paper:

"The second part of the nature vs. nurture theory suggests that behaviors and personality traits are nurtured, or encouraged through a series of events whether good or bad. The second element of the "synthesized theory" says that when those two theories are combined with a new theory, such as studying generations of criminals, we have an entirely different approach to dealing with crime. This new "synthesized theory" can be named "generational studies" for the purpose of discussion."
