dc.description.abstractWhat is the nature of man? An adequate answer to this question would provide important clues to an understanding of the critical personal and social issues facing the contemporary world. Philosophers, educators, theologians, and others have long sought to comprehend human nature; but today there is still need for more research on the question. The problem proposed for this dissertation was to investigate the writings of Robert M. Maciver for the purpose of determining and describing his conception of human nature. A contributory part of the problem was to make an analysis of certain representative sociological, philosophical, and theological conceptions of human nature and compare them with the views of Maciver in order to sharpen the issues. The representative expressions of human nature are those made by Charles H. Cooley, George H. Mead, Edgar S. Brightman, and Reinhold Niebuhr. [TRUNCATED]en_US
