Reflections on Violence


Abstract
If it is our aim to establish a world order in which nonviolence and peace prevail, then it is helpful - even essential - to understand the nature of violence. Many believe violence is such a fundamental expression of human nature that we will never be free of war. I wish to argue against this view. The analysis that follows will focus on these issues: defining violence; effects of violence; varieties of violence; causes and consequences of violence; and controlling violence
