THE FORMAT GOING FORWARD, FOR NOW As the syllabus states the main goals of this class are to improve our reading comprehension and to improve our writing ability. The authors of the texts we read are the teachers and my task to help you learn from them. It is you who do the action of learning and you do so by exercising the action of reading and comprehending the thought of another. And you also learn by the act of composing written responses to the questions that arise in your reading or in your responses to the doctrines taught by our authors. Given our circumstances, the best path forward is to increase your written analysis and responses to the texts we read. So, for each class assignment I will provide an outline and/or brief analysis or summary of the text. I will then ask you to write answers to several questions which will allow you to exercise your reading comprehension skills. I will then comment on your responses. There will be a general comment summarizing what most of the class properly grasped, or insightfully grasped and what was not so clearly seen by others. There will also occasionally be individual responses to your analysis to help you see better what the author taught and how he presented his thought. The previous version of the reading questions was asked and answered to provoke class discussion, so the answer had merely to be a restating in your own words what the author taught or said. Our discussions were meant to help us all better understand that teaching and the truth. Now your answers are to be more thought out, more engaged in expounding, clarifying or questioning what they thought was true. Feel free to ask questions where something is not clear, or you find it to be wrong. Feel free to give your own reflections on what you understand the author to be saying. PAPER FOR PHIL 202 SECOND PAPER FOUR TO FIVE PAGES IN LENGTH CHOSE EITHER TOPIC 1. In Chapter five, Locke presents an argument for man’s natural right to private property. What is that argument?

Is it limited in scope? Has the right changed over time? What occasioned that change, if it did in fact alter? Does man have a right to unlimited acquisition of private property according to Locke? 2. For Locke, all power that one man has over another man is a limited power. Why is such power always limited? He further argues in the case of such particular modes of such a power that the limits, origin and ends of the power is different, why? In the case of parental power, spousal power, and political power, why is each of these powers limited in its own peculiar manner? Present how he argues that political power, his principal concern, is limited. Present how and why the other forms of power over an other is limited in their own manner. ...

Right to Property




Right to Property

Individuals have the right to own property in any part of the world. It is the role of the
government to ensure that such rights and liberties are protected to enhance diversity and
cohesive living among members of society. In his book, Locke emphasizes on the need of
protecting individual rights to private properties in the world. Locke argument provides that the
hand of nature provided everything that human beings need for survival and subsistence in their
lives. The properties were provided by God during the creation period, where he gave Adam,
Noah and all his sons the right to own everything in the world. Such observation means that
individuals have exclusive rights and control over everything in the world. The argument implies
that the land and properties in earth is communal and everything has a right to own property.
However, Locke observes that the properties would not benefit the mankind without private
ownership. The shift in resources from communal ownership to private ownership must,
therefore, be morally justified to ensure the mankind benefits from the subsistence that was
intended by the creator during the creation period.
Locke’s Argument on Private Ownership
Locke highlights that it is the right of every individual to use the available natural
resources provided by nature. God, the creator, provided such things to enhance their common
