TEN THEORIES OF HUMAN NATURE **NEW**

BY STEVENSON & HABERMAN

**NEW** CONDITION – NEVER USED – BEEN IN STORAGE

HARD COVER WITH DUST JACKET

GREAT BOOK FOR CITATIONS …

Lucid and accessible, Ten Theories of Human Nature, compresses into a small space the essence of such ancient traditions as Confucianism, Hinduism, and the Old and New Testaments as well as the theories of Plato, Immanuel Kant, Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, and Jean-Paul Sartre.

The authors juxtapose the ideas of these and other thinkers and traditions in a way that helps readers understand how humanity has struggled to comprehend its nature.

To encourage readers to think critically for themselves and to underscore the similarities and differences between the many theories, the book examines each one on four points--the nature of the universe, the nature of humanity, the diagnosis of the ills of humanity, and the proposed cure for these problems.
