Difficult and more impracticable it is to live with others, even more easier said than done and more impractical it is to live without them, in absolute loneliness. The fact is that loneliness is unpleasant is observable. The view that humans are inherently social creatures is no longer contestable, but what accurately this implies for lives and societies is not completely valued either. Moreover, the view that loneliness plays an important function for humans just as do physical pain, hunger, and thirst and that understanding this function and its effects on social cognition holds some of secrets to healthier, wealthier, happier lives is not so apparent. Last but not the least, human loneliness is identical to feeling unsafe as individuals feel threatened in social environment due to loneliness (Cacioppo and Patrick, 2008 p. X-XI). In the light of these beliefs, the purpose of this essay is to critically discuss the issue of “Human Loneliness” with the case of John Steinbeck’s (1965) novel “Of Mice and Men”. The three aspects of human loneliness are identified and further with reference to novel’s selected quotes, these three aspects are critically evaluated. These three issues are loneliness is unpleasant, loneliness as physical pain and loneliness is identical to feeling unsafe.
困难和更难办的是与人相处，更说起来容易做起来难，更不是无忧无虑的生活，在绝对的孤独。事实是，孤独是不愉快的观察。认为人类是天生的社会动物不再是可竞争的，但准确，这意味着生活和社会价值也不完全是。此外，认为孤独感起着重要的作用，人类就像做身体上的痛苦，饥饿，口渴，了解这个功能和对社会认知的影响举行的一些秘密，更健康，更富有，更快乐的生活不那么明显。最后但并非最不重要的，孤独是人类感觉不安全的个人感觉在社会环境由于孤独的威胁（卡西奥普和帕特里克相同，2008 P. X-11）。在这些信念的光，这篇文章的目的是批判性的讨论“人的孤独与约翰斯坦贝克的案件的问题（1965）的小说《人与鼠》。人类的孤独感三个方面确定并进一步借鉴新选定的引用，这三个方面是严格的评估。这三个问题是孤独是不愉快的，孤独是身体上的痛苦和孤独是相同的感觉不安全。
