Thomas Hobbes and Aristotle on Human Nature
A 5 page paper that argues the fact that Aristotle's ancient view of the inherent state of human nature, a state which posits that man is born into a natural state of civilization that nurtures the cause of the common good, is a more fitting assumption of man's nature as it was intended than is the philosophy of Thomas Hobbes, which posits that man is born an inherently selfish and warring creature. Discussed are reasons why Aristotle's philosophy should be viewed as a philosophy of hope for the twenty-first century while Hobbes' philosophy basically presents a philosophy of destruction.
