You will be constructing a polis or community in the vein of your chosen political philosopher. In order to do this, you must do the following things:
Content: Using the reading and other sources, tell us the political theorist’s thoughts regarding:
-What Justice is
-Who counts as a citizen
-Who holds Authority or Power
-What is the relation between Economics and Politics
-What is the meaning of Freedom
Presentation: Each group member must present on a section of their topic. Presentations should be done in the style of the TED talk we watched and/or JB’s presentation on Nietzsche. A visual component is not necessary but is allowed should you desire to use one. Presentations should be organized and remain on topic. Discussion questions should be saved until the presentation has been completed.
Your presentation should run in the following manner:
1. Introduce your thinker and explain the basics of their thought
2. Quickly walk us through the reading in the book highlighting the major points.
3. Directly or indirectly, explain to us the thinker’s answer to the questions in the content section.
4. Give us a picture in words of what the ideal society of this thinker would look like.
Presentations should not exceed 20min. and you are advised to use a script or outline to keep your presentation on topic.
