Position held by numerous exponents of Existentialism and by representatives of various historicist currents. Some confused ideologies have also emerged based on so-called “human nature.” In general, these naturalists accept the definition of the human being as a “rational animal,” and thus place him in the category of an evolved “animalitas,” with which they do not determine the structural differences between a human being and an animal; rather they note the differences in complexity that develop within one same structure. It is difficult to understand how these naturalists or neo-naturalists can consider themselves to be “humanists.”
