dc.description.abstract This thesis presents the results of a descriptive study of the "nature-nurture" debate on the origins of human aggression, strong group affiliation, and rise of altruistic tendencies in human beings, particularly as it relates to collective violence. In the process of researching and writing this thesis, the author conducted literature reviews and conducted interviews with combat veterans. This thesis is slated to be a reference and resource to inform graduate students’, researchers’ and conflict interveners’ appreciation for the potential predisposition toward, and viability of, combat held by parties in conflict.
