The act of voting out of a sense of duty is not a utility maximising act (Stephen Parsons 2006: 295). Do you agree with Parsons? ?

This is a rational choice and politics essay which needs to be first class degree standard, and has to focus on the subjects of rational choice, voting, collective action, utility maximization and so on.

In terms of format this is the advice IVe recieved from my tutor:
argue throughout the essay that you either do or do not agree with Parsons this will allow you to analyse aspects of Parsons position throughout the essay, so the level of argumentation rather than description will be more consistent throughout the essay. If you take this approach the essay will need a clear and logical structure, and would probably benefit from a solid empirical base to support the arguments that you are making.
