Question description

Consider the similarities and differences in the opinions of John Locke, Immanuel Kant, and Henry David Thoreau on the subject of conformity and state and personal liberty.  Next, ask yourself what factors made the actions and results of the French Revolution so different from the American Revolution and did those factors determine the outcome.

THEN,  Use the following questions to guide discussion question #1:

  • In terms of artwork, how did Jacques-Louis David’s art exemplify revolutionary and neo-classical values? Support your answer with at least one description of David's paintings.
  • How do you relate Delacroix’s “Liberty Leading the People” to the revolutionary period in France and early American history?  Point out details in the work of art that exemplify that period.
  • Discuss the reasons why the neoclassical style was deemed appropriate for sculpture and architecture in the “new” United States.
  • How does all this tie in with the philosophers and philosophies of the time
