Social Contract Theory

Contractarianism: Hobbes Social Contract

We will have spent all of class on Monday talking about flowing.  As I was preparing this class, I found this link.  I honestly couldn’t explain how you debate better than this article, so go read it now.  It’s short.

This is a model of a debate flow.  This isn’t specific to LD – you’ll notice there is no Value or Value Criterion on here.

Flowing Homework

Homework assignment 1:

Watch the video and flow the constructives, the rebuttals and the KVIs.  You should enjoy this. Upload a picture of your flow to our google drive.

Social Contract Homework

Lots of videos today.

First, I talk about morality in this video.  It’s a short, poor, nasty, brutish and solitary video.  (Ok, that’s a joke.)

 

Video 2:  Social Contract Theory:  How do we live together?

Ever watch a group of 1-year-olds?  There’s a reason we don’t leave them alone.  They can’t be trusted.  They don’t understand social contract theory.

Here’s a lecture explaining it to you.

 

Bring 4 balls to class next week.

PLEASE BRING TO CLASS NEXT WEEK (February 18, 2019)

Four balls.  Any four balls.  They don’t have to be four of the same balls.  They don’t have to be big, small, colorful, not-colorful.  They can be soccer, football, ping-pong, baseballs, tennis, whatever you have.

We need them for class, so please be sure to bring them!
