Aggression Publication date : March 1, 1996

Does aggressivity amount to biological destiny? Can we explain why, since time immemorial, man has taken up arms against man? Are we intrinsically condemned to violence and even crime?

Because aggressivity is not only a subject for observation by scientists but an important subject for reflection by each one of us, author Pierre Karli addresses the issue from a scientific as well as ethical perspective.

Pierre Karli is a member of l'Academie des Sciences and professor emeritus of neurophysiology in the faculty of medicine at the Universite Louis-Pasteur in Strasbourg. He recently published Le Cerveau et la Liberté with Editions Odile Jacob.
