Neuroscience, War and Peacebuilding
Most of us, political scientists included, fail to appreciate the extent to which instincts and emotions, rather than logic, factor into our societal politics and international wars. Many of our physiological and genetic tendencies, of which we are mostly unaware, can all too easily fuel our antipathy towards other groups, make us choose ‘strong’ leaders over more mindful leaders, assist recruitment for illegal militias, and facilitate even the most gentle of us to inflict violence on others. Fitzduff’s work, based upon the latest research from emerging areas such as behavioural genetics, biopsychology, and social and cognitive neuroscience, addresses the sources of compelling instincts and emotions which often guide our behaviour, and suggests we have a need to acknowledge and better manage them so as to develop international and societal peace more effectively.
