Past War and Future Peace. Thoughts from biology about society.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will pose questions of biology and society, and suggest some answers. Are humans intrinsically violent? If so, is that the end of the story, or as a thinking species, can we overcome that tendency? Are we overcoming it? Is violence and warfare decreasing or increasing now and over the centuries? How can we accomplish its decrease and ultimate demise?
