CARTA: Male Aggression and Violence in Human Evolution – Christopher Boehm: Warfare and Feuding in Pleistocene Societies

8/1/2014; 19 minutes

In this talk, Christopher Boehm (USC) discusses how today's hunter-gatherers are used to portray likely patterns of male aggression among culturally-modern foragers in the Late Pleistocene epoch. Patterns of aggressive behavior are considered at three levels: within groups, between groups of the same ethnicity, and between groups that consider one another strangers.
