Sample text

Three edited books of ethnographic case studies of nonviolent and peaceful cultures also have been published (Howell; Willis, 1989; Montagu, 1978; Sponsel; Gregor, 1994). Most recently, Fry (2006, 2007) has systematically and vigorously argued with ample evidence for the human potential and actuality of nonviolence and peace. Given this extensive documentation of nonkilling and peaceful sociocultural systems, the only way that any author, scholar, or scientist can possibly assert that human nature is inherently murderous and warlike is by ignoring the ample evidence to the contrary from a multitude of diverse sources.

The specializations available for listing in the AAA form include conflict, conflict resolution, ethnic conflict, violence, and warfare, but revealingly, neither nonviolence nor peace are listed. The idea of human nature also needs to be problematized (Cannel; Macklin, 1974; Curti, 1980; Sponsel, 2007; Stevenson; Haberman, 1998). Logically, human nature may or may not exist, it may be uniform or multifarious, it may good or bad, and so on. For example, some anthropologists would argue that there is no single, uniform human nature; instead, there are numerous human natures as expressed in the diversity of some 7,000 different cultures extant in the world today.

Org) Incidentally, the facts that soldiers have to be trained to injure and kill other human beings, and that many of those who do so often suffer serious emotional problems that may endure over many years, are yet another line of evidence invalidating the Hobbesian myth of dismal human nature. net) As in political science (Paige, 2002: 74), likewise in anthropology, authors who have dared to consider the possibilities of nonviolence and peace have been variously accused, stigmatized, and dismissed as unrealistic, idealistic, romantic, or utopian dreamers (Otterbein, 1999; Sponsel, 1990, 1992, 2000b, 2005).
