The Naturalist Theory is a philosophy which says that people are born with the ability to distinguish between what is right and what is wrong and that they have the knowledge that they are responsible for acting in the proper manner.

Early legal systems, such as the early American legal system are based on this theory.

This system was popular for a long time but lost its shine because of the changes that came in during the eighteenth century. Rapid industrialization, migration of people, mixture of cultures and communities forced people to move to a judicial system that is more than the plain Naturalist Theory.
