Each week, students are required to respond to a discussion prompt on D2L to reflect understanding of and critical engagement with the assigned readings. There will be 10 discussion prompts in total (each worth 2.5 points). Discussion prompts are posted under the “Discussions” tab. You must start a new thread to respond to the prompt. Responses to each question within a prompt must be at least 150 words in length.
Also, you must respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts on the thread. Discussion posts and peer responses are always due on Saturday at 11:59 p.m. (EST). In Theories of General War, you have reviewed many theories of international war. Which theory do you like most and why? Can you apply any theory to explain the ongoing U.S.-China trade war? What is your reflection on the biological theory of aggression? Do you see any limitation of this theory? What’s your overall ‘take-away’ from the discussion on war (Chapter 1) in Approaches to Peace?
