WARRIOR GODS: Aggression- Perspectives from Myth and Science


Our discussion on male and female aggression will start with archetypes likeMars, Pluto, Sekhmet, and the Valkyrie.  Bring your favorite archetypal image of aggression to discuss.  We’ll go over what current science says about aggression and then on to the question of why there is so much violence in the world today.  We will finish with how Donald Trump’s verbal attacks are changing the tone of our current presidential campaign.


Beverly Fourier has studied the scientific roots of male aggression as well as its depiction in myth and history.  She was born in Adams, Massachusetts, the birthplace of U.S. suffragette Susan B. Anthony.   Beverly has an undergraduate degree in languages from Boston University, a graduate degree in Education from Stanford University, and a graduate degree in Human Development from the George Washington University.  She lived in Warsaw, Poland, Tehran, Iran, and Moscow, USSR, as a U.S. Foreign Service spouse.
