Using three theorists, answer one of the questions below. Choose among these theorists: Locke, Marx & Engels (considered as one theorist) Rousseau, Wollstonecraft and Mill. In your essay, be sure to use specific evidence from the readings to back up your thesis. Material from the lectures and discussion is also appropriate, but the primary emphasis should be on the readings.

1. Most of the theorists discuss the role of property and some of them also discuss women, marriage, family and education. How do they understand these social institutions? What does this understanding reveal about their overall political theories? Which theorist makes the best argument? Why?

2. How do our theorists understand the role of freedom and democracy (understood broadly)? Does freedom require democracy? Does democracy threaten freedom? Do either justify revolution?

3. How important is the idea of equality to each theorist? Under what conditions, if any, is inequality acceptable? Which theorist has the best understanding of the issues surrounding equality? Why?

4. For our theorists, what are the sources of injustice in their societies? What should be done about these injustices? Do the proposals for eliminating injustice create their own problems for a just society?
