Human Nature Blog

This website started as a record of conversations between Fred C Spaulding and his uncle David B. Spaulding on the topic of human nature. We hope that the topics discussed below will be taken up by others to widen the conversation and that the website can truly become a forum that supports the study of human nature as an academic topic.

The posts that follow address topics related to common traits and tendencies that we all share as human beings. Each post ends with a question for the reader. 

We will continue to add reference material to this website and we intend to develop an interactive forum on topics related to human nature. Please leave any comments or suggestions below using the reply link.

We are looking for academic contributors to add more depth and resources to the site. If you are interested in being a formal contributor to this conversation please send a message to
