Write an essay that presents one or more central claims made by one of the thinkers we have studied, and then evaluates those claims through the perspective of another thinker. You may choose which claims you would like to focus on. Here are a few possibilities (but feel free to come up with your own ideas as well): What is the role of law in our personal development? When, if ever, should we break the law? Is violence ever justified in response to injustice? What is the role of a “gadfly” in a political community? What does the gadfly do? What is their ultimate purpose? What risks does their work entail? What is the role of the philosopher in relation to the political community they inhabit? What is the relation between personal and political improvement?
