        • Necessity of Social Life

768. In seeking out society, do human beings only yield to a personal motivation, or is there a greater providential purpose?

“Humans must progress. They cannot do it alone because they do not possess all faculties and need contact with other humans. They become animal-like and stunted when isolated.”

No one possesses the complete range of faculties. Through social union, human beings complete one another, and mutually secure their well-being. Because they need one another, they have been created for living in society and not in isolation.
