Key Terms

Your first essay assignment will be to evaluate one or two of the following terms, in reference to a relevant literary work of the period you are investigating.  Further details on your essay assignment will be posted by your instructor in the Notes & Resources section above.

PERSON

What does it mean to be a person?  It is a word we take for granted, but there are competing notions of person at play in the world today!

JUSTICE

Most reasonable people belived that society should be just and fair.  But what does it mean to be just?  Which philosophy of justice should we follow?

LOVE

It's hard to imagine what life would be like without love!  And yet today, very few people are able to distinguish love from emotion and feeling!

FAITH

"Faith" is typically associated with religious belief today.  But the common definition of faith does not stand up to scrutiny!  So how should we explain it?
