Free Will and Existentialists, Nature vs Nurture
1. The existentialists, such as Sartre, claim that if there is a human nature, it is formed by a homosapien as it lives its life and is done so by the choices it makes. Relate the concepts of free will and responsibility to this claim.
2. There are those who claim there is a genetic basis for behavior. All human activity is determined by one’s genes. On the other hand, persons such as Plato, Marx, and Skinner believe that, in varying degrees, society determines human nature. Can you reconcile these two views?
