    Abstract

    Il presente lavoro fornisce una panoramica e una lettura interpretativa delle principali correnti del pensiero economico che studiano il comportamento umano, e che prendono le mosse dal virtuale dibattito fra Hobbes e Hume circa l'uomo allo stato di natura. Nel dibattito contemporaneo si confrontano due visioni contrapposte : l'uomo come animale volto all'esclusiva soddisfazione del vantaggio personale e naturalmente teso alla sopraffazione e allo sfruttamento dei propri simili, e l'uomo come essere per natura cooperativo, che spontaneamente si accorda con gli altri per il raggiungimento degli obiettivi personali e collettivi, senza bisogno dell'intervento di alcuna autorita' superiore. Al presente dibattito vengono poi affiancate le ultime ricerche compiute nel campo della sociobiologia, scienza neonata che studia le correlazioni fra mondo biologico e mondo culturale e comportamentale.
