Purdue University Approaches to The Causes of Human Aggression Essay


Thought paper about “what is violence?

Approaches to the causes of human aggression have taken various paths, primarily dispositional, social [1], psychological and situational-based explanations. Critique each of these approaches and evaluate how well they help us understand violence using a real-life case example of the violence of your own choosing. The paper’s focus must remain the comparative analysis, and the case is only illustrative of the causal arguments. The paper should not be a summary of readings but must be a critical analysis. Have the authors left unconsidered something essential to understanding whatever process it is that they are examining? Make sure you substantiate any critical claims you make. The Paper will be 7-8 pages.

Section Required Texts and Material:

Jacoby, T. (2007). Understanding Conflict and Violence: Theoretical and Interdisciplinary Approaches. Taylor & Francis Group e-book available at https://ebookcentral.proquest.com/lib/novasoutheas…

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
