This research puts into dialogue Hobbes’s and Spaemann’s stands on the nature of trust by means of a hermeneutical approach. The main results of this reading show that for Hobbes distrust is the first thing that the human being encounters, and trust is learned; while for Spaemann, man is a trusting being and learns to distrust. This dialogue reveals that both authors have human sociability as a basis for trust, which allows to con-clude that the disposition of trust occurs in human nature as a condition of possibility for the act of trust.
