Prof. Felson's work has focused on issues related to the debate about nature versus nurture. For example, Prof. Felson published a paper in the past year which explores the extent to which sexual orientation is simply a product of biological predispositions, or whether social forces, such as religious background, also play a role ("The Effect of Religious Background on Sexual Orientation").
Prof. Felson has also written a book with Edwin Mellen Press, entitled What Can We Learn from Twin Studies? A Comprehensive Evaluation of the Equal Environments Assumption.
