Congrats!(Now must read what I've congratulated you for; heavens.)
I don't think that's actually necessary. It will not be on the exam.
OK, read them … Hobbes is one seriously messed up dude. Is the follow-up argument that we are all his heirs in this conception of the family>
It's not an illogical position. Family loyalties are a problem for the development of the state, especially a state that develops out of a feudal/aristocratic context. The follow-up is that one of our inheritances is Hobbes's antipathy to civil society and private association, and his preference that individuals depend on and are loyal only to the state. But we are also heirs of the Locke/Montesquieu/Tocqueville line of thought which promotes civil society and private association. Our tradition is very rich, or contradictory, depending on how you prefer to frame it.
Interesting. Hobbes' Children for the monograph title? Or just as the name of the band?
The eternal student-writing question! Even the far-left has its doubts: http://thenewinquiry.com/blogs/against-students-stories/
Withywindle: Bodin's Children, if we're being accurate. That could be good, although totally opaque as far as the argument goes.Phoebe: Student non-writing, even. Student facebook commenting! But it got him a WaPo editorial byline at age 18, thereby proving my point (in a truncated way, unless he actually becomes a journalist as a result of this).
