The Nature of Human Beings

by Juan Manuel Elegido

The aim of The Nature of Human Beings is to present a realistic and internally consistent picture of human beings that may help readers understand themselves and others better. It will be useful to university students who are not pursuing a degree in philosophy but need a general knowledge of the nature of human beings that is simple without being simplistic. This book can be understood by readers who do not have any previous knowledge of philosophy. The Nature of Human Beings explores topics such as the emotions, intelligence and will, freedom, human fulfilment, human development, the social nature of human beings, and human dignity. This book tries to keep things simple by concentrating on essential issues and ignoring details, refinements, and many matters that are relatively secondary. In this way the main lines of the subject are made more clearly visible.
