The third presentation entitled “Aggression and media” is trying to give an answer to what aggression is, types of aggression, reasons for aggression, aims of aggression in media, the good guys and the bad guys, opportunities to protect ourselves and our children, opportunities for mass manipulation through media, forming a kind of thinking and perceptions within children. The fourth presentation “Aggression and media – nature and consequences” is trying to give an answer to what aggression is, what is its nature, what kinds of aggression exist, what is the connection between “violence, aggression-media”, chief sources of media violence, contra-arguments and conclusions. The fifth and final presentation – “Aggression and media – football” considers aggression in the game of football, the propensity to fouls, the reactions of the fans and the many lost lives due to cruelty on the stadiums and fields.
The presented material is interesting thanks to the many authors, the variety of topics and the large amount of visual materials, supporting the facts, the statistics, the data and the definitions. This compilation of presentations gives an interesting point of view regarding a particular generator of aggressive behavior – namely the media, which tend to play a greater role and have a greater influence on easily impressionable young minds. Interesting reading both for the grown ups – mainly teachers and parents – and the youths – adolescents.
