Kill For Fun
1,574 wordsThe human race is believed to be at the pinnacle of development. We have reached the top of the mountain of success and evolution; we have surely surpassed the wild animal. We have evolved past the primal use of instincts to the utilization of reason and intellect. There are times in the course of a human's life however, in war for instance, where all reason and intellect is compromised and men revert back to instinct, back to animal. War presents a man with more hardship, physical and emotional...

J: What say you about this Konrad, I have a Scotch terrier that used to live in the barn, and I recently moved him into my home. In the barn, he had this nasty little habit of burying things into the ground, and upon being moved into the house continued with the same behavior. After a few days, he eventually stopped trying to dig altogether. How would you explain...
Chapter 4 The Aggression In Animals
1,317 wordsCHAPTER 3 The instinctive aggression does not means that it is related either to the Darwinian theories or genetically heritable.

Helga's Natural Instinct
1,416 wordsDuring the Harlem Renaissance, many literary works concentrated on celebrating African American heritage. However, many other writers also began concentrating on the darker theme of naturalism. Nella Larsen's Quicksand illustrates many elements of this movement. These include a biological determinism, where man is conceived of as controlled by his primitive animal instincts and a sociological determinism, whereby the weak are destroyed and the strong survive in a world of struggle and chance. He...
Self Interested Instinct
1,875 wordsIn Defense of Instinct - Hobbesian egoism 1. What is Hobbesian egoism First, let me explain what I mean by Hobbesian egoism. Egoism is of course the view that the only thing we ought to do is serve our own self-interest. Hobbesian indicates what is regarded to be in our interests: physical survival, material comforts, abundant sexual gratification, etc. Hobbesian egoism may be profitably contrasted with the egoism of Aristotle or Rand, which hold that what constitutes our self-interest is much r...
683 wordsRobotic Animals The debate about the intelligence of animals has been one of the most frequently talked about subjects in the study of animal behavior. Are animals intelligent, or are the just doing what their instincts tell them to do. But if an animal only reacts on instinct, how have some animals been able to survive even though their environment has changed. How could these animals survive they are not able to learn from and recognize the changes to their environment. Too me the idea that an...
Human Capacity For Evil
913 wordsThe Qualities of the Prince is Machiavelli's "how to" manual for a great leader. He maps out each quality so that it may be easily be implemented by the aspiring emperor, king, or dictator. His premise is that there are some things that must be sacrificed, such as high morals, in order to gain others, such as power. As long as the end justifies the means, Machiavelli asserts that all is fair. Machiavelli basically claims that mankind is inherently evil. He claims that it is fundamentally impossi...
