This is humanities class where we all discuss about the quotes/texts from a book or a reading and without using any research or outside source!!! Evidence for your essay must be based only on the assigned texts. Do not do any outside reading or research in preparing the essay. It should be based on your thought and your thought only.
You can use first person singular (I, me) in writing humanities essay, place yourself in the background of your writing, but have to distinguish between appropriate and inappropriate uses of the first person singular (see Humanities handbook)
Your examination should focus either on a critical difference(or differences)between the views presented or on a key similarity (or similarities) between them, but not both. Although you may at the outset briefly note that there are various similarities between the two works (in an essay that focuses on differences) or certain differences between them (in an essay that focuses on similarities), do not attempt to comprehensively address both differences and similarities, given that this is a short essay. Remember that you will need to advance a unified thesis and provide a claim clarification, and be careful to avoid the problems of offering a splitthesis or a list thesis. See the Humanities Writing Handbookfor guidance on all these points.Prompt: Another key theme that runs throughout our course is the concept of “human nature.” Consider the views of Thomas Hobbes and Martin Luther with regard to this problem. Write a thesis-based essay in which you compareor contrastthe ideas in Hobbes’s Leviathanand the assigned texts from Luther about what human nature is like. Along these lines, for example, you may wish to consider such matters as what these writers think our “natural” qualities and character are, and what they say about the difference our shared human nature makes in the way we live our lives.

I have attached some important files below to help you.
Thank you! the book was divided into 3 parts due to over size. Make sure you can access them all. Also so, here are the lecture with powerpoint (transcripts) I downloaded form my Prof’s page which he talked about Hobbes, PLease skim through, it will help you approach the right path he wanted. thank you.
Also, when you using quotes/ texts please make sure you put the author name and page number exactly where you get it from. My prof also grades and checks on those quotes/texts too. last time another tutor didn’t use the book version I sent him, so the quotes he used didn’t match page number as the right version
