Book Details

Violence fills us with horror. Yet violence entertains us. How is this possible? Are human beings born violent? Or do we learn to do it? Most important of all: can we stop before we destroy each other? Can People Stop Being Violent? looks at how thinkers have tackled the problem of violence. From school shootings to giant robots, real and pretend violence are part of our everyday lives. Yet philosophers of nonviolence tirelessly work to show human beings a better way. Packed with 2500 years of wisdom and stories, Can People Stop Being Violent? challenges readers to think about their own ideas about violence.
