Who is Hsun?

Hsun, M.O. Chinese thinker who lived between 395-288 BC and who put forward views on the nature of man, the opposite of his contemporary Mencius.

Hsun Tse, who argues that man is inherently bad and his goodness is nothing but a fake, pointed out the importance of dominating nature, contrary to the suggestions of other Chinese thinkers to not attach much importance to nature, to direct all attention to oneself and to listen to our own inner nature. He wanted it to be exploited.
