    Re: Human or Human being

    Not a teacher. 'human' can be an adjective or a noun. When its part of speech is noun, its meaning is the same as 'human being'.

    Human is an adjective as well as a noun.
    As adjective it describes something relating to people, especially as opposed to machines or animals, as: the human body, the human brain/mind, the human spirit etc. Also, in combination with other nouns if forms many composite words used as nouns, as: human being, human rights, human race etc

    So human being is a noun as also human; having same meaning : a person
