I am fairly new to this area of study and would really appreciate any sort of help you can give.

My essay requires that I define the human condition in Hobbes' eyes, but also whether or not Hobbes is an optimist or pessimist.


I have used http://oregonstate.edu/instruct/phl201/modules/Philosophers/Hobbes/hobbes_human_nature.html to get a general understanding, but I would really appreciate someone elses input/guidance in tackling this question.

Thanks in advance.

I don't get it, have you actually read Hobbes?

Why don't you just read his works and come to your own conclusion?

Why would I need to read him? I'm just writing an essay on him. You should only read an author if you're doing it as a hobby or something.

I have read a fair bit of Leviathan, more specifically ch 13. I need to however write 2000 words and I am currently struggling to get anything more than half that. Perhaps I am an idiot, but unlike other Philosophers, I have struggled with Hobbes and would greatly appreciate some help if anyone happens to be clued up on this.

Is the 'human condition' the same as the 'human nature' ?

Oh, I didn't know this was some sort of after-school homework club.
