Video: Andy Thompson on suicide terrorism

Andy Thompson gave an absolutely superb and erudite talk about suicide terrorism at the 2007 Atheist Alliance International Conference. In his lecture, Thompson convincingly uses evolutionary psychology to explain the psychological mechanisms responsible for the occurrence of violence generally and suicide terrorism specifically. The first part of the talk is embedded below (or click here); alternatively you can download the video in .mov format here.
