Responses to Aggression In Man


The instinctive aggression does not means that it is related either to the Darwinian
theories or genetically heritable. But it definitely is seen in particular stage of social
development. This development does not mean the positive development but it means the
wrong education that we inherited from our ancestors, which I have mentioned before.
Moreover I do believe and agree with the idea of the organised behavioural system since
some people apply this aggression as a character. Lastly what I can say about the
development of aggression referring to this text is if there is no demonstration of
aggression in one’s environment the aggression in him cannot be developed any way. So it
is developed by learning and inherited by genes.

My final response to Chapter 3 is that male domination society makes the man be more
aggressive rather than woman. Besides the female are born not to struggle with hard
conditions of life but to take care of her family. And that is why we see that men are
more active in aggression. However one thing we should not ignore is the female can be
more aggressive than the male when her family is under attack or risk. The human nature is
due to change through the conditions of life and therefore the aggression, which we
inherited from our ancestors by learning not by our blood, is having a wider place in our
lives. So this means it develop more each year since no one has done a real and effective
precaution about it.


The aggression in animals does not show anything about the aggression in humans because
the aggression in animals is directly connected to their instincts. They can not think or
decide. They do what their instincts tell them to do and this is the main fact, which
differs them from us. There are some common points between the humans and the animals
since we share the same world and we share the same life with them. So let there be this
much in common between us but please do not relate it to us.

Secondly I can say that sex differences and hormones really do have a particular role in
the aggression of animals. This is not hard to see or understand, in some of the animals
such as the rats, which are mentioned in the text the female of these animals are more
aggressive rather than the male one. Then we should think that the instinct of protecting
her environment from the external dangers. But sometimes the male animals are observed to
be more aggressive rather than the female. So this means that not only one gender has the
instinct of aggression. But this is only for necessity because the animals do not kill if
they are not hungry or defending their families.


To this 4th Chapter I can say that the environment of the animals has a great effect on
their behaviours as I have mentioned before. If the environment is calm and every member
of the society is in secure then the aggression in that society is not normal. However if
there is a certain continuous threat to their lives, food or place than the aggression is
quite normal and this aggression is the most usual among the animals. Just as our
aggression neither social status nor the hormones do not cause us to be aggressive more
than normal degrees. But as it is mentioned in the text some external chemicals and
internal disturbances can make us and also the animals be more aggressive.

My response to the conclusion of Chapter 4 is that these studies which made on animals can
be really reliable, however as I have mentioned before this never means that we as humans
evolved from them. So the common world we share, the common life we live and most
importantly the common god we have made us to have something in common with each other. So
the similar reaction to the same effects is very normal.


Finally the book and we came to the point which I have been supporting from the beginning
of my responses. This time the individual aggression is the subject and it seems like some
of the scientists and theorists have overcome the stupid evolution theory. In this chapter
we see that the human aggression which is more than an instinct does vary and has a
developmental pattern. From this point we can easily say that not the instincts but the
behaviours which are gained in time by the effects of environment guide our aggressions.

Up to this point we discussed almost all probabilities of how aggressions occur and what
