In the last two millennia, no agreement has been reached as to exactly what the nature of the law is.  In almost every discussion concerning this critical issue, two basic issues have come up.  First, we need to identify and describe the nature of man.  In other words, is humankind good, bad, or something in between the two extremes?  Second, we need to identify and describe the nature of the political state.  These elements saturate the writings of the great legal philosophers and are the foundation ideas in nearly every system of legal thought.
