It can be assumed that all the factors that affect the temporomandibular joints also affect the articular eminence and its inclination.

The claim that all passions are social in their content occurs in the Anthropology where Kant divides passions into "passions of natural (innate) inclination," on the one hand and, on the other hand, "passions of inclination that result from human culture (acquired)." (29) The innate passions are "the inclinations of freedom and sex, both of which" can have "the impetuosity of an affect." The acquired passions, "which are not connected with the impetuosity of an affect but with the persistence of a maxim established for certain ends," are "the manias for honor, dominance, and possession." (30) Each of these three acquired passions stems from a desire to acquire influence or power over other people.

(29) Third, "[a]ll other precepts of the natural law are based upon this: so that whatever the practical reason naturally apprehends as man's good (or evil) belongs to the precepts of the natural law as something to be done or avoided."
