Hume and Bergeson were philosophical scientists who are remembered for their contributions on humanity nature. Bergerson’s philosophy advocated for the fact that a person has a free will, which is conceived within their hearts. The basis of their decision is therefore based on what they feel rather than what they see. The imaginative nature of humanity is responsible for all creative that is seen in the world. Hume on the other hand emphasized the fact that desire was the main inspiration aspect that comprise of a human. The driving force behind human action is derived from their desire to see them happen rather than reason, which is the function or purpose of such outcomes. The role of Hume and Bergeron was to define human nature and the contributing factor of their development and creativity.
Bergeson believes that humans are born with a brain, which is an internal organ that influence their decision. It is therefore not about the external forces influencing their decisions but rather their internal thought. Bergeson defined intuition as an inner force that prompts a person to undertake certain actions. This may come after a recollection of the outer environment whish has to be internally synthesized before a decision is made. With this, he implied that a human being ahs the ability to sense something prior to its happening. This is meant to prepare them by taking the necessary action so that they are not adversely affected. This hence means that before a building is set, the soul has already predicted what is likely to happen if the building was set or not. By the time a decision is physically implemented, the soul had already established and even planned for its arrival.
Hume distinguishes his philosophical thought on human nature basing on reason and desire. By this, he implied that it is usually the desire within a human being to get somewhere that will make them take the necessary steps. This is mainly because of the unpredictable nature of reason, which may not be established before a person takes the step. Desire is more stronger as it has inspired humanity into creativity. This philosophical thought explains the changing nature of humanity and the different developments that occur with generations. For instance, it is the desire of man to fly like a bird that motivated them to come up with an airplane. Before man discovered the reason why he needed an airplane, the desire had already pushed him to come up with something.
Both philosophical views touch on the issue of human freedom with emphasize that he was designed to be free and not be limited by any laws. There is a free will within each person, which determines the limitation of their action. For instance, when there could be a desire in a person to have something, they will work hard to either obtain it or use any shortcuts like stealing to acquire it. Desire is hence the initial inspiration, which will now determine the steps that will be taken by the person in having such a desire being met. Comparing this to Bergeron’s thought, we realize that after the desire is birthed for a person to have or acquire a certain thing, the mind will have to process and come out with possible outcomes were they to chose any of the available alternatives. For instance, if a person desires to move from one place to another, they will realize that they need a mode of transport, which may be a car. It is however through their intuition that they will choose which the most appropriate car is and whether it will be easy to get it or not. These procedures take place internally before a physical decision is reached at.
Freewill is an internal human nature, which determines the steps that a person makes. Despite the availability of laws, they may not do much to limit or increase human freedom. Man is naturally aware of the consequences that will accrue after making certain decisions. There is also the aspect of need which has to be compared with the consequences and hence prompting a person to reach out and act. Even though external factors shape human behavior, it is not usually the most prompt decision that is made; there is a process that takes place in the mind and soul of a human being that will ultimately make them reach the decision. The human nature has been designed to evaluate on the need and the consequences, both positive and negative that will ultimately prompt the decision. This has helped shape morals and turned human into a creative breed. Human freedom is only limited when the mind perceives that making a certain decision might negatively impart on them or the people around them. This is however not determined by the laws made or passed but rather the internal feeling that a person experiences when they think of engaging in a particular act.
