ХОРОШЕГО ЧЕЛОВЕКА ДОЛЖНО БЫТЬ МНОГО?: АГРЕССИЯ И ЕЕ СВЯЗЬ С РАЗМЕРАМИ ТЕЛА
The article is a review of research done both in Russia and other countries on the relationship between the body size and aggressive behavior in humans. This work describes the principal methods and ap- proaches to studying the influence of weight and height on aggression, presents the results of important research conducted among children, adolescents, and adults, both in normal and pathological groups, from the late 1970s to the present. In addition, I discuss the main theories that attempt to explain the relationship between body size and aggression. I further discuss the shortcomings of the research done in this area to date, which has been mainly concerned with samples and methods, and propose pos- sible ways of solving methodological problems in future research endeavors.
