Our Human Nature: Were Plato and Machiaveli Wrong?

Peter Sheldrake, Ph.D., Adjunct Professor at Wake Forest University, Adjunct Professor, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia.

Discussant: James Dwyer, Ph.D.,Department of Bioethics.

Exploring what is meant by "human nature" is about exploring the borderline between our instinctive and thoughtful selves. Plato and Machiavelli shared a similar view about human nature, especially in relation to self-interest. Today, the question remains as to whether their views still make sense-and this paper will comment on this continuing debate.

Dr. Sheldrake does not have financial relationships with commercial interests.
