The best case that's ever
been made against pseudo-scientific claims for the
inevitability, naturalness, and permanence of war
was made by a science writer who took every
notion seriously and debunked it. In The End of
War, John Horgan examines dozens of examples and
counterexamples discussing chimpanzees and bonobos,
warring and peaceful indigenous people, World War I and
Vietnam, Margaret Mead and General Sherman as he finds
his way to war's complicated origins. Horgan argues for
a far-reaching paradigm shift with profound implications
for policy students, ethicists, military men and women,
teachers, philosophers, and any engaged citizen.
Want to hunt for weaknesses in Horgan's case
and ask him about them? Want to ask him how to
persuade your uncle? Want to be as informed as possible?
Want to meet others of like mind?
This is your chance. And the spots will be
full soon. Register
