In a remarkable display of scientific knowledge and concern for human survival, Konrad Lorenz, the Nobel Prize-winning naturalist, gives his views on war and peace, sex and violence, pornography and love, homosexuality. He sees these issues in terms of his own original work in animal psychology, including his famous observations of geese, parakeets, Moscovy ducks, and jackdaws at his farm in Alternberg, near Vienna.
