In this way, both Hobbes and Locke have broken down human motivation to a basic state of nature. It can be described as a ‘what-if scenario’ in which the people have to understand their own actions as well as the actions and motivations. However, it needs to be noted that in this regard, the two states of nature with which Locke and Hobbes have come up with are totally opposite (Tierney, 2002). Hobbes has established a science that is capable of explaining humanity in a scientific way, at the same time, it has also been argued by Hobbes that the desire for power is so strong that for his fellow men, man is a wolf and the real state of nature for man is at war (Kant, 1995). On the basis of this argument it appears that if two men come across each other on a narrow path one of them will be the other and make way for himself (Ormerod, 2006). On the other hand, a significantly different approach has been adopted by law. The ideas of John Locke regarding human nature are based on a deist philosophy which means that the presence of God is recognized by Locke but behind this being or beings, he does not espouse any particular religion. Therefore instead of having the human nature rooted in individual, the natural laws govern the human nature that has been established by the creator (Svara, 2001). As a result of this situation, and individual focusing on self-interests but at the same time having an eye on the community remains in the focus of the views of John Locke regarding human nature.
