 Psychopharmacology and the human condition
Contemporary human life is very different from the ecological and social environment in which humans evolved, and which shaped human psychological architecture [1].
It is probable that most humans throughout recorded history have lived in a 'sick society'; a society in which almost everyone was ill, people were physically malnourished, stunted and mentally impaired - a society in which most of the populations are potential 'patients' with the ability to benefit from appropriate treatment.
Since it is probable that the normal human condition is sub-optimal, and that psychological dissatisfaction and psychiatric 'illness' of various kinds is endemic - in principle there is enormous scope for psychopharmacology to improve the human condition.

 FHA - An Overview Of The Human Condition
It describes how the anger and selfishness felt by humans is the result of these two factions within ourselves—the gene-based instinctive learning system struggling against the nerve-based intellect’s capacity to understand.
This conflict, which started some two million years ago when consciousness emerged, causes humans to live with an undeserved sense of guilt that is characterised by competition and aggression.
Catch phrases that we are familiar with, like ‘human potential’ and ‘self esteem’, stress this yearning for self-justification and self-realisation, but the ability to feel contented ultimately depends on self-understanding—understanding why we are competitive, aggressive and selfish rather than the ideal of being cooperative, loving and selfless.

  AF Presentation — the human condition — malice
The Human Condition is that set of beliefs, conditionings and instinctual passions that form the habitual and neuro-biological program by which human beings currently operate and have done so, with few significant changes, ever since the emergence of the species.
The Human Condition can be likened to the ‘rules of the game’, defining the parameters and limits of what it is to be a human being that have been established, and embellished, over thousands of years.
The range of the Human Condition of malice and sorrow is marked by resentment, frustration, anger, violence and warfare at one end and melancholy, sadness, depression, despair and suicide at the other.

I think that a great impending threat to humanity would be needed to convince the world powers to become dedicated to focusing on human needs and human development along with the possibilities that come with hope that a new direction would be successful.
Reading, taking courses in human consciousness, meditating, participating in different religious and cultural activities and talking to friends are ways I’m learning about people and how they are motivated to work toward improving the human condition and human quality of life issues.

 Godel's Proof and The Human Condition
Godel's Proof has nothing to do with the human condition(*1) -except, and that in an intellectual sense, it DOES account for its existence -as a consequence of ignorantly created and circumstantially continuing, ambiguous language and the unpredictability of what we have yet to discover.
We have, in effect, a 'system of human phenomenology' and an inherently evolved 'apocrypha' of inconsistent and ambiguous dogma for a logically inseparable 'congregational' body: 'human rights and freedoms', 'human nature' and generally factional other beliefs and 'theoretics' of little integrity with respect to that phenomenology -statements neither 'provable' nor 'disprovable' within the system.
This 'subtlety' is of the greatest importance in that it identifies the manifest preponderance (in human communication) of material fundamentally lacking forensic integrity -dogged, interminably, with 'further clarification'.

 On the Human Condition by Ryuei   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The path of humanity is the state where suffering is recognized for what it is, and morality and reason are called upon to ameliorate the human condition.
The human state is considered a very fortunate one because reason is not dominated by the sufferings and strivings of the four lower paths nor is it distracted by the pleasures of the heavenly path.
For this reason, the human state is the most conducive to the cultivation of the path to liberation.

 CHAPTER 7: The Human Condition
Despite the purposes for human life, which are proclaimed by religion and, for the most part, nurtured as ideals in the breasts of men and women, the human condition is in reality characterized by suffering, war, oppression, poverty, vain striving, and disappointment.
A second way to understand the human condition is to recognize human nature as the arena where the desires to do good and evil are in protracted conflict.
The human condition is also understood as the result of a fall from a potential or primordial state of grace or as a deviation from humanity's original purpose.
