Hobbes' view of man was very negative and believed that man acted only in self-interest and was completely self-absorbed. This would contrast with the behavior of animals who act instinctually. Animals do certainly act for self-preservation, but man acts this way, according to Hobbes because he cares nothing about others even though he could care.
