General and Theoretical Perspectives on the Psychology of Radicalization and Lone Wolf Terrorism
Pp. 1-29 (29)
Radicalization is a global event affecting different countries and is present in
different historical contexts. A social and psychological account could only reduce the
impact of terrorism considering a historical fact. Nevertheless, there are elements of
radicalization in the dark history of humanity that still today bear consequences on
casualties and their progenies. The victims of political extremism, the modern
persecution of children in conflict areas, and the mass murders in a zone of interethnic
conflicts are examples of how radicalization and terrorism continue to decimate victims
worldwide. The knowledge of historical and political aspects interpreted with a
psychological lecture can probably highly the seeds of radicalization and hopefully
reduce or stop its diffusion.
