By using evidence from this week’s readings (the textbook chapter and the document excerpt that you’ve chosen) write a full three paragraph (one per question and 5-6 sentences per paragraph) response to ONE of following tasks (A or B):
[A] Jean Jacques Rousseau, The Social Contract:
What do you think is the fundamental problem or problems that the social contract is meant to solve?
What do you think that Rousseau means by the ‘general will’? What function does it serve in his political theory?
Why do you think that some view Rousseau as a champion of democracy, whereas others see him as a spiritual precursor to modern tyranny?
[B] Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations:
How do you define Adam Smith’s principle of the “invisible hand”?
What does Smith say were the results of a laissez-faire policy?
According to Smith, what were the duties of the sovereign (the state) under the system of natural liberty? Do you think there are other duties that should be added?
Since the Analyses are based on the course readings, formal citations are not required. If you are using more than one source (such as the primary source document and the textbook) and need to distinguish between authors, you can include citations if you wish. Any style (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.) is fine. Outside sources are not recommended, but, if used, ensure that they are academic sources and that they are properly cited.
