Video – War & Human Nature via Crash Course in World History

This video featuring John Green focuses on ‘War and human nature’ and is part of the Crash Course in World History educational series.  This episode provides a 10 minute discussion which looks more philosophically at whether humanity is naturally warlike, hard-wired to kill, or whether perhaps war is more of a cultural construct.

Watch the video and let us know your thoughts about war, human nature and the relationship between the two.
