Human Nature Quotes (1908 quotes)
Human nature is a bundle of characteristics, including ways of thinking , feeling , and acting , which humans are said to have naturally. The term is controversial because it is disputed whether or not such an essence exists. Arguments about human nature have been a mainstay of philosophy for centuries and the concept continues to provoke lively philosophical debate. Debates about human nature are related to, although not the same as, debates about the comparative importance of genes and environment in development " nature versus nurture ".

Human nature , fundamental dispositions and traits of humans. Theories about the nature of humankind form a part of every culture. A broader problem is that of determining which ostensibly fundamental human dispositions and traits are natural and which are the result of some form of learning or socialization. Recent research in genetics, evolutionary biology , and cultural anthropology suggests that there is a complex interaction between genetically inherited factors and developmental and social factors. Basic drives shared with other primate s are related to food, sex, security, play, and social status. Language use by humans is now generally recognized as genetically enabled, though the acquisition of any specific language also requires appropriate environmental stimuli.
All mammals play — but no other species pursues such a wide variety of entertainment or spends so much time enjoying themselves. Humans are constantly sorting the world into categories, predicting how things work, and testing those predictions — the essence of science.
