This assignment is an analysis of the relationship between individual and community/society in the modern era: how various historical societies viewed the proper role of the generic individual and the proper role of society, what rights and responsibilities were assigned to each, how these values worked in practice, etc. You must consider the relationship in its historical context – how these were viewed by a particular society at a particular time in a particular place.
You must analyze examples from TWO different nations or cultures (at least one of which must be NON-“western”, i.e., NON-Euro-American) chosen from some point in time between 1500-2000, AND close with a discussion of how you (today) view the relationship in your society compared to the historic views you analyzed and what ideas of value you have drawn from this examination. This mean your paper will examine the relationship between individual and community from at least three different perspectives — two historical (#1-2) perspectives PLUS your own perspective of your own contemporary society (#3).
How you define the concepts “individual” and “community” and what historical examples you choose are up to you, BUT DO NOT focus on the impact one “great” individual had on a society (i.e., no Columbus or Akbar or Kangxi or Napoleon or Cixi or Gandhi or Hitler, et al.) and DO NOT just string together summaries from class materials.
Talk to me if you do not understand what this assignment asks for.
