Ethology

The science of animal behaviour which has been frequently linked with attempts to explain the causes of War and human aggression by linking human behaviour to that of animals. This approach to the causes of war became popular after Konrad Lorenz's book 'On Aggression" was published in 1967 and blames war on an instinctual aggression which humans have evolved with as a survival trait.
