Abstract:

Aggression in the world today is discussed as a lawful, natural result of the conditions this world continues to impose upon man. It is contended that there are reasons for race riots and reasons for mans tendency to resort to bombs and bullets. It is believed that in order to have such behavior cease, we must alter the conditions of which it is a function. More than likely, much aggression results from a childs early training and also from the fact that large segments of the worlds population are still being forced to live under conditions which can be characterized as painful. Although human aggression remains an extremely complex problem, the data resulting from the experimental analysis of animal aggression will allow not only a greater understanding of the phenomenon, but will perhaps provide some of the first real breakthroughs contributing to its effective control.
