Why did Althusser claim...

Hi everyone!

I recently recieved this question in my philosophy class and Im a little stumped. Can anyone help me out? The question is as follows…

Why does Althusser claim that, “Man is an ideological animal by nature”?

Thanks!!! :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

Wiki says:

Sounds like an early version of adaptive psychology.

All that wiki quote inspired in me was a desire to edit and reformat it but, hey, it gets the point across. Althusser was one of my favourite philosophers a few years ago when I read him as an undergraduate, but then I was quite heavily schooled in a certain form of German Idealism and his re-interpretation of some of their classic structures of thought was rather refreshing…
