The purpose of this paper is to consider potential causes of violence behaviour by bringing together a disparate array of theorists. Violence is considered, specifically, in light of psychological literature dealing with attachment styles. In a nutshell, how our relations with early caregivers shapes our personality. Some well-known developmental theorists, namely, Piaget and Vygotsky are touched upon; as well as Maslow's hierarchy of needs; followed by an existential approach of Kierkegaard. General comments on both the negative and positive role of violence in human development are drawn out.
Key words: Kierkegaard, violence, moral development.
