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.
