What Can Animals Tell Us About War?

Animals and Warfare

Animals and Warfare

I am a massive fan of TEDtalks – they are very informative, thought provoking and cover an incredible range of topics. I strongly suggest you take a look at the available talks on the TED website.

Today I have chosen a TED talk by Mark Briffa, who discusses Animals and Warfare.

What Can Animals Tell Us About Warfare? Animals frequently enter into fights over access to disputed resources. Can understanding how fighting animals make critical decisions, such as the decision to ‘give up’, give us insights into aggression in humans? In his talk, Mark will show how the logic of animal contests can be applied to our understanding of Warfare.
