On this blog I publish articles about human behaviour, about our emotions and archaic instincts.

These articles are excerpts from my book – ”Homo aggressivus” – on ethology and psychology of human aggression.

You’ll find here how are expressed human instincts in modern society and what can we learn from evolution and animal behaviour.

My field of research is the human social ethology – the revealing of biological / instinctive foundations of human social behavior.

”Ethology” derived from ”Ethos”, a Greek word meaning “character”, ”habit”, ”behaviour patterns”.

Scientific interests: social instincts, identity conflicts, social aggression, hierarchies, paleo-style.

In my work I explore a wide range of topics at the intersection of human behavior, evolution and development. My approach is interdisciplinary and driven by the quest for theoretical synthesis.

I have a special scientific interest to develop my own domain of instinctology – the realm of human instinct research.

And my own concept of instinct therapy – the application of science of instinctual motivations to improve the lives of individuals, families and society.

I am also concerned about the popularization of science, organize courses of scientific rhetoric, write articles about social ethology and about popular science in magazines and portals from Moldova and Romania.

  4. Glad to know you are writing a book on ethology of human aggression. I work on the physiological side of aggression. One of our findings is that a chronic deficiency of aggression can lead to a number of disorders including type 2 diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, PCOS, chronic fatigue syndrome and many others. If you are interested I will send you a series of papers on it.
    Or go through my book: Doves, diplomats and diabetes: a Darwinian interpretation of type 2 diabetes and related disorders.


    • Hi, Milind.

      Your ideas are very interesting to me. I share practically same thought, that unexpressed aggression can cause neurophysiological problems. I wrote already in my book about these factors.
      I will make references to your work in my book.
