Dorothy Lewis, a psychiatrist, and Jonathan Pincus, a neurologist, worked together to develop a new theory about violence. They agree that abuse, in and of itself, does not necessarily result in violence, any more than neurological impairment or psychosis does. Lewis and Pinus argue, however, that if you mix these conditions they become dangerous. The philosophical implications of their arguments are discussed.
