sources are: FIRST SEMESTER:
Antigone (monarchical political life): Antigone – Good of the community is not always
compatible with justice for the individuals. (Billy Budd too) (Both have a crisis situation)
Creon is trying to preserve the state by naming a family as traitor. Family vs. state.
Religion vs. state. Public vs. private duty.
An Enemy of the People (democratic political life): Stockmann – tyranny of majority
(town hall shout him down. Public opinion can change. Public opinion can be
manipulated. Public opinion does not necessarily reflect what is just but can determine
Billy Budd (military justice/justice in war): Billy Budd — Good of the community is not
always compatible with justice for the individuals. (Antigone too). LAW is not
necessarily just, it is concerned with legal vs illegal not just vs. unjust (making law/policy
can take into account just vs unjust, but once law/policy made, just must follow it).
you must use 3 sources and one has to be from 1st semester and one has to be from 2nd semester. You can also use from source below.
NOTE: First semester readings were Sophocles’ Antigone, Plato’s Apology, Aristotle, Locke, de

Lincoln/Douglas Debates, Federalists/Madison/Declaration of Independence, Smith, Wealth of

Malcolm X’s Ballot or Bullet, McWhorter, Coates, JS Mill’s On the Subjection of Women,
Okin, MacKinnon, Arisophanes’ The Congresswomen, Billy Budd
once you picked your three sources you MUST let me know so I can send you the readings and the page numbers. Without this the paper will be worthless to me.
Notes: Length will not be as much of a boost in your grade as accuracy of your retelling of the material, level of comparative analysis (making creative comparison and connections, weighing and evaluating implications of the author’s points of view, etc.), and the creation of sustained argumentation with a coherent thesis.
