Prof Greg Hanlon (Dalousie): The behavioural sciences and military history

March 10, 2015 @ 4:15 pm - 6:00 pm

Free
The paper will discuss the important shift in thinking about the wellsprings of human behaviour occurring since the 1980s, away from culture and towards the existence of human universals. The talk will discuss the theoretical approach to the study of war and collective violence, and then examine some important work in psychology, anthropology and human and primate ethology as they apply to this problem. It will conclude with a selection of recent work by historians who are alive to these issues as they comb the sources for evidence of conflicts in the past.
