Hobbes thus infers from his mechanistic theory of human nature that humans are necessarily and exclusively self-interested.

In addition to being exclusively self-interested, Hobbes also argues that human beings are reasonable. They have in them the rational capacity to pursue their desires as efficiently and maximally as possible
