Play and regulation of aggression
Since 1960s, our culture has leaned towards the developmental philosophy of Rousseau:
children are naturally self-regulating, positive, creative, and good. Only culture makes
them bad.
Hobbes: the child is a force of nature, willful, destructive, capable of self-harm, in dire
need of careful, cautious, and intense socialization and damned in the absence of social
order.
Psychoanalysis not a derivative of Hobbes, Humanism not a derivative of Rousseau
Frued- aggression is innate, socially induced frustration between reality and pleasure
principle.
Aggression is natural and not added to a peaceful temperament.
Young kids are fundamentally egocentric. Their own desires are paramount and are only
bounded by the immediate consequences.
Aggression manifested at eighteen months
This aggression is dependent on the low-level, fast maturing brain structures like the
hypothalamus and periaqueductal grey.
Aggressive behavior peaks in KG and declines over time
By four, most children are social. Those who are not are aggressive forever.
Chronically aggressive people are suspicious, narcissistic, self-centered, apathetic, and
have inappropriate and brittle high self-esteem.
Chimps are just as aggressive as kids in their social groups
Most of the in-group aggression in chimps is related to dominance hierarchies, like in
humans
Starts off as teasing, becomes dominance displays as teenager, and could become
physically violent as adults.
The establishment and maintenance of a dominance hierarchy allows for orderly access to
desired resources.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
