So much depends on our theory of human nature. In our private lives we use it to winfriends and influence people, to manage our relationships, to bring up our children, tocontrol our own behavior.

Its assumptions about learning guide our policies ineducation; its assumptions about motivation guide our policies in law and politics.

Theres even a theory of mental health: that psychologicalwell-being comes from accepting Gods purpose, loving God, loving our fellow humansfor the sake of God. The Judeo-Christian theory was based on an interpretation of particular events narratedin the Bible. For example, the doctrine of free will is grounded in the story in whichAdam and Eve were punished for eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge, implying thatthey could have chosen otherwise; therefore, free will exists.
