Human Nature and War

International relations theorists who focus on the individual level of analysis find themselves at odds over two basic premises. One group (human nature theorists), believe that violence is innate to humans and therefore the state (which constitutes a specific geographic group of individuals) becomes a vehicle for which those violent impulses are channeled. The second group (cognitive theorists), see human violence as a learned behavior, not instinctual, and therefore something which could potentially be “unlearned” or “relearned.” In this essay, examine the data produced by both sides of this argument and explain who you think gives the more compelling explanation for violence and war.
