In their inspiring article Bushman and Anderson (2001) suggest that the hostile – instrumental aggression division, although for decades useful in discussions on the mechanisms of aggressive behavior, is nowadays obsolete. According to the assumptions of the reversal theory, the division also loses its meaning; the mechanism of aggressive behavior is based on optimizing the level of arousal and hedonic tone. Arguments in favor of both these views, a reflection on the use of typology of aggressive behavior in the analysis of violent crime is presented in this text.
