Humans as A Killing Species

by Ken Fuchsman, Ed.D., President, International Psychohistorical Association

Thursday, May 31st, 2018, @ 1:40 pm - 2:30 pm    

1 CEU

Abstract:

Humanity does not live by bread alone.  Foul, fish, and beef are staples of the diets of many of us.  We kill billions of animals and plants for food each year.  There are at least fifteen ways we kill.  Our large brains, language, and empathy are seen as characterizing our species.   Killing should be added to the list, for human existence cannot yet be separated from using force to end lives.  This paper explores homicide, suicide and war as part of how humanity is a killing species.

 

Learning Points:

At the end of this educational activity, its participants will be able to:

1) analyze the place of violence and killing within human existence;

2) examine the psychological impact of war on its participants, and what drive combatants to emotional extremes;

3) discuss and analyze the origins of suicide - in different cultures, in past and present;

4) discuss the psychology of men who kill intimate partners.
