Original Human Nature.

Those two were not predominant but had the most extreme opinion when referring to human nature. Their biographies reflect their opinions on this topic.

When Thoams Hobbes (1588-1679) lived there were many terrible wars, for example: (1) the war between England and Spain (1588-1599), (2) a very terrible war, probably the most terrible war of the Occidental history - the Thirty Years’ War (1618-1648) -, (3) another war which was terrible too - the English Civil War (1642-1651) - and (4) the also terrible wars started by Louis XIV of France.

When Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) lived the wars were already so called „Kabinettskriege“ („cabinet wars“), thus they were not as terrible as they had been before.

But Rousseau’s philosophy about the human nature is wrong, because his „natural human“ as the „wild human“ is not the better human.
