Worldview Analysis Paper Instructions
You will write a 2-page paper (double-spaced, 1-inch margins, 2 full pages) providing examples of how some facet of “process philosophy” has impacted American government and/or society. You may focus on just 1 example, or you may discuss 2–3 examples.
Options include the following topics:
- A specific piece of legislation
- The “party platform” of either the Republican Party or the Democratic Party (or both)
- Family & Marriage
- Civil Rights
In discussing one of these topics, the goal is to relate how a particular political perspective derives from process philosophy (such as socialism). In making the connection, incorporate clear references from the required reading.
The required reading and study material for Module/Week 4 must be cited, specifically:
- Martin: chs. 8–13
- Either 1 or more of the presentations from Module/Week 4, or Lecture Notes 4.1
- Several (2–4) additional outside sources which provide specifics on your chosen topic
