"On Aggression" is a scientific study that explores the concept of aggression in both animals and humans from an ethological (study of animal behavior) perspective. The author argues that aggression is an innate and necessary instinct that has helped species survive and evolve. However, he also emphasizes that this instinct, when unchecked or misdirected, can lead to destructive behavior and violence. The book provides a comprehensive analysis of the biological roots of aggression, its role in the evolution and survival of species, and its implications for human society.
