Approaches to the causes of human aggression

Thought paper about “what is violence?

Approaches to the causes of human aggression have taken various paths, primarily dispositional, social [1], psychological and situational-based explanations. Critique each of these approaches and evaluate how well they help us understand violence using a real-life case example of the violence of your own choosing. The paper’s focus must remain the comparative analysis, and the case is only illustrative of the causal arguments. The paper should not be a summary of readings but must be a critical analysis. Have the authors left unconsidered something essential to understanding whatever process it is that they are examining? Make sure you substantiate any critical claims you make. The Paper will be 7-8 pages.

All written assignments will be in Word, Times New Roman 12- pt. Font. APA citations will be used, reference pages required, and pages will be numbered.
