The Value Structure of Nonviolent Personality Predispositions.
Mayton, Daniel M., II
What differentiates nonviolent individuals from violent individuals? This paper addresses the question by linking current psychological literature on human values with literature on nonviolence. Recent contributions to values theory have begun to establish a universal structure of human values. The theoretical case is made that nonviolent predispositions are positively related to the value domains of universalism, benevolence, and conformity. Some empirical support for these relationships is provided and recommendations are made for future research on nonviolent personality predispositions. (Contains 20 references.) (DB)
