Summary or Abstract : Both control theories and evolutionary theories of criminality have generated much controversy. A major criticism of control theories is their inability to explain adequately many of the key correlates of crime. Evolutionary theories are frequently dismissed out-of-hand as they are perceived to be overly deterministic. These competing theories are not mutually exclusive, and an evolutionary psychological account can be demonstrated as belonging within the control paradigm. Integrating an evolutionary approach with the control paradigm allows the major objections to these theories to be overcome. Evolved psychological mechanisms and situationally specific scripts serve as the backdrop, which allows for the explanation of the major correlates of crime. Low self-control leads to scripts favoring immediate, thrilling, and often violent actions being chosen with greater frequency than scripts which favor delayed gratification, morality, and sensitivity to the needs and wants of others. This thesis provides an empirical test of these models based on the Add Health Survey.
