Learn to understand criminal behaviour by looking at our evolutionary history and animal behaviour in general. Criminologists, like scientists generally, agree that life resulted from a process of natural selection. But most do not use that information when studying what crime is and why it exists. In this subject, you will learn the process of natural selection and how it can be used to make sense of criminal behaviour. We will use the theory of evolution to make sense of a broad range of crimes including several types of homicide, child abuse and neglect, spousal assault and group level aggression such as warfare, hooliganism, rioting, and gang fights.

Ce cours présente les grandes tendances et évolutions de la criminalité, ce qui définit la criminalité dans une société et ce qui influence son évolution. L'État établit de nouvelles interdictions qu'il assortit de sanctions pénales au fur et à mesure de l'évolution de ses propres intérêts, mais surtout pour répondre à de nouvelles formes de criminalités, car le crime est un phénomène aussi évolutif que protéiforme.
