8/28/07 3 Levels of Analysis 1. Man A. Human Nature -humans are animals, animals inherently group and make war -there is a relationship between organism and environment -hormones must be harnessed and controlled *while human nature explains why humans war, it does not explain the patterns of human warfare B. Human Error 1. Perception affects response to a situation 2. People who bring bad news are often punished -results in poor transfer of information up the chain of command 3. Humans are naturally biased 4. Cognitive Failure -incorrect processing of information -cognitive dissonance: actions and beliefs clash -the idea of an ally backstabbing, or vice-versa -bolstering: making your ideal more secure by throwing out adverse evidence and playing up weak supporting evidence -premature closure: convincing yourself of a truth despite evidence to the contrary C. “Great Man” (“Consequential Man”) Theory -the idea that some humans matter, or individuals can influence history -examples: Hitler, Churchill

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
