Human behavior

In science, human behavior, or the behavior of humans, refers to the typical or atypical traits or characteristics of the activities or movements of people, singularly or interactively.

Thermodynamics
A number of people have attempted to explain human behavior thermodynamically. [1] Two of the earliest to do this, supposedly, were Americans anthropologist Leslie White and sociologist Fred Cottrell. [2]
