Summary
According to Donne 'no man is an island' but how exactly are we affected by the behaviour of others? Are there 'laws of nature' that guide human affairs? Have we complete freedom in creating our societies, or are we trapped by 'human nature'? And how, in human affairs, does one thing lead to another?
