Human Nature in the Post-Modern Era: Toward a Theory of Instinctual Flourishing
Languages of publication
The question of human nature has not been effectively addressed in our time be-cause of great skepticism in the academic and philosophical discourses about the idea of social progress and the validity of a common humanity. As a result the question has been reduced by neoliberalism, biopsychology, and social psychology to demonstrating the malleability of humans in response to hierarchical, biological, or social-conformist pressures. To recover the concept of human nature it will be necessary to reconceptual-ize the dynamic of human development as a feature of the modern and late modern achievements of a more evolved vision of individuality and community.
