Reign of Terror Socratic Seminar Discussion Date: Wednesday, January 9, 2019 Prompt: Can Terror Ever Be Justified? “Terror is nothing other than justice, prompt, severe, inflexible; it is therefore an emanation of virtue; it is not so much a special principle as it is a consequence of the general principle of democracy applied to our country's most urgent needs.” -Maximilien Robespierre Instructions: 1) Read the piece entitled “Justification of the Use of Terror” by Maximilien Robespierre. Robespierre was one of the most notorious figures from the French Revolution. Essential Question: How does Robespierre justify the use of terror? Is his justification valid (both during the French Revolution and in today’s world)? 2) Also read the articles on Unified Classroom, “Psychology and Torture,” by Stanley Fish and “Robespierre and the Terror,” by Marisa Linton. Mark-up and use your text, your own notes and knowledge, and at least two outside sources.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
