This paper is for my social science class and I would like to have at least 6 pages
(Excluding the Reference page, double-spaced, Font: 12-point Times New Roman).
Given the very short amount of time this paper must be done (48 hours) and some
background knowledge about Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau and Burke is preferred, the
price is negotiable and I will prioritize the scholars who studied or is studying social
science, more specifically the formation of social structure.
1. Comparing at least two of the six authors covered in this course.
The reading list for this class is
Hobbes, The Leviathan; Locke, Second Treatise of Government;
Rousseau, Discourse on Inequality and Social Contract;
Edmund Burke, Reflections on the Revolution in France.
2. Develop your own arguments, not just summarize the readings; exploring their similarities and differences.
Below are some ideas of this paper I have:
I want this paper’s focus to be the discussion on the around the thesis that
Therefore, the comparison between the different definitions (changeable) of legislator is essential to the analysis of the optimal social structure.
For the first body paragraph, I would like to focus on the author No.1’s discussion on the formation of legislator and the ideal mechanism he/she favors.
For the second body paragraph, I would like to do the similar thing for the second author and start comparing the difference of the two.
For the third body paragraph, I would like to bring some issues that presents in our modern legislative system and try to analyze them based on two authors’ theories that I choose.
Last paragraph will be devoted to the summary of the paper and some topics that act as an extension to the legislation of the society for reader to think about.
Here are some potential quotes that I want to use:
