By Saturday, April 19, 2014, respond to the discussion question. Submit your responses to the appropriate Discussion Area. Use the same Discussion Area to comment on your classmates’ submissions by Saturday, April 19, 2014, and continue the discussion until Wednesday, April 23, 2014 of the week.
This week you have learned about the four primary perspectives in social psychology: sociocultural, evolutionary, social learning, and social cognitive, all of which can be used to describe social interactions; however, depending on the situation, some may be a better fit than others.
Let’s consider an important issue in social psychology—aggression—specifically the gender differences in aggression. For this discussion we will assume that men are more aggressive than women.
Discuss how each perspective would explain this relationship. Out of these four perspectives share which one you believe has the best explanatory power for explaining why there is a gender difference in aggression. Discuss at least three assumptions that this perspective would make in explaining this relationship.
