Violence as a strategy for enlarging human survival potential

Raphael Steinitz, Shimona Goldman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We address three main issues: 1. What is violence? 2. What situation is conducive to preferring a violent strategy? 3. Can one anticipate the outbreak of violence through appearance of indicators (i.e., "charge time")? To answer these questions, we use our previously defined concept of "Human Survival Potential." This enables us to base our thesis on sociobiological principles.
