I would like to know if 一人 ( hitori ) can mean only, just?

I know this. It wasn`t the question. I want to know if hitori can mean just, only. Like in tada, dake. For a moment I would like to know if 一人 の人間 ( I know it means one person ) can also mean only humanity.

No, I don't think so. My dictionary defines hitori like this:-

一人: 人数のかぞえ方で、一名。
独り: (1) 自分だけのこと。 (2)結婚していないこと。

一人: one person in the system for counting people.
独り: (1) alone, solitary. (2) not married.


For a moment I would like to know if 一人 の人間 ( I know it means one person ) can also mean only humanity.

As far as I know, it means either one person, a human being, or an individual.
