For example:

In conclusion the genetic and bio chemical explanation are very similar because they are both reductionist, deterministic  and individual explanations of behaviour which emphasise the nature side of nature-nurture debate. However they are different in terms of the applications they have and the genetic explanation is more socially sensitive.
