Understanding The Aggressive And Destructive Nature Of Man
AbstractEach society has a different way of evaluating types of aggression due to cultural differences and the relative natüre of socio-cultural value judgments.Supported by arguments of some personality theories and social psychology, this study discusses, from a psychological point of view, the reasons why aggressive nature of man leads to wars and destruction. The study also tries to understand the outlet which aggressive nature of humans stems from by probing into the subject matter. At this point, it is of great significance to address intrapsychic and cognitive aspects of humans and to discuss moral self-concepts based on such aspects. However, any kind of moral choice related to man constitutes a paradox in itself. Fort his reason, the study tries to find responses to questions regarding how phenomena such as peace and tolerance can emerge while analyzing the paradoxes from the view point of different philosophers.
