The origins of aggression sex differences: Evolved dispositions versus social roles

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (2):223-224 (1999)

Abstract

The ultimate causes of sex differences in human aggressive behavior can lie mainly in evolved, inherited mechanisms that differ by sex or mainly in the differing placement of women and men in the social structure. The present commentary contrasts Campbell's evolutionary interpretation of aggression sex differences with a social structural interpretation that encompasses a wider range of phenomena.
