That’s what he was asking him-self.
Why was his father so violent?
And Why — didn’t — he become violent?
He wasn’t as interested in who, when, where, or what: but why. To answer the why, he also had to come up with the how — individuals become violent.
In asking these why questions, and researching for answers, he ended up with a useful and profound answer.
His answer is on the nature and nurture of the SELF: The Self as Soliloquy. And we all have a SELF.
But that’s not the whole story….
