Write an essay where you reflect on the
contemporary relevance of ancient codes, documents, and artifacts that
contributed to the evolution of our modern conception of human rights.
Your essay should answer these questions:
What, according to H. Gene Blocker, are the most important historical sources for our contemporary conception of human rights?
To what extent, if at all, can you identify in contemporary
culture and government specific legacies of any of the ancient codes,
documents, and artifacts we studied this week?
Please ensure that your essay addresses each component of both
assigned questions and that your answer is well-organized, uses
excellent, college-level prose, and makes judicious use of textual
evidence. Your essay should be 600-900 words long.
