2. It has to choose one of the following: (Thomas Hobbes, Jean Jacques Rousseau, John Locke, Karl Polanyi)
and Imagine a debate/dialogue btw Thomas Hobbes, Jean Jacques Rousseau, John Locke, Karl Polanyi and Aristotle.
I will writer all information below and attach file. please read very carefully. 🙂
3. Choose ONE of the following:
Jean Jacques Rousseau
Imagine a debate/dialogue between either Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau OR Polanyi AND Aristotle.
How would one of those thinkers respond to Aristotle?s dictum that ?the
polis exists by nature and is prior to the individual?? (i.e., what kind of short
conversation can you envision taking place between the two men?)
Your response should not exceed one page, double spaced using a 12-point font,
typed, and with your name only in one of the upper corners. (Please don?t put your SID on your papers).
To help you think about this, consider the following:
What do you have to know to answer this question? What is the ?polis?? What type of community is it?
Is it open to all members of society?
What does Aristotle presume about ?nature? and about human nature?
What do Aristotle?s presumptions about the polis (as an ideal form of the ?state? or political community) tell us about his understanding of human freedom and equality?
How is this different from the presumptions of Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau and Polanyi? (Remember to consider them all, but only write about one.)
Which of the other philosophers might be likely to agree with Aristotle? Why? What evidence do you have?
Which of the other philosophers would be likely to disagree with Aristotle? Why?
What evidence do you have?
Core concepts: philosophical understandings of nature, the state of nature and human nature; definitions of ?community,? the meaning of politics and obligations of humans to each other.
