History 4C: Fall 2009 final study questions Professor Rappaport Directions: All students may bring in one 8 ½ by 11 sheet (both-sides) of prepared outlines to the following questions. Your study sheet may include quotations from the books and outlines but should not be the essays themselves. You will turn in your study sheet with your exam. Please be sure that you cite all the sources that you use for the exam. You will answer one essay question in part A and one in part B. A good answer will: a) address the whole question b) include as much material from your reading (textbook, reader and/or other books) and lecture as possible c) have a clear argument which you state in the introduction d) be clearly organized and well written. Your job is to analyze as much evidence as possible and to create an argument based on that evidence. Your evidence can and should be drawn from material in lectures, your textbook, and other texts. Please bring two large unmarked blue books to the final. There are also two other sections to the final, and a possible extra credit short answer. Part A. (50 points) You will answer one of the following on the exam (there will be a choice of one out of three questions) before and after these occurrences why are we studying this event; why does it matter? 1. The Enlightenment criticized many aspects of the Old Regime and introduced the basic ideals of modern forms of democracy, notions of the rights and responsibilities of the state and citizens, and the relationship between the state and the economy. Define this intellectual movement and then consider how it influenced European history since that time. Consider whether the ideals (especially concerning politics, the economy and the nature of the individual) were adopted and/or rejected in at least three of the major political events we have studied (for example, the French Revolution, Russian Revolution, imperialism, Nazism/Fascism). definition, what defines it, what happened, but how does it link to other events (revolutions) 1. “Enlightenment is man’s release from his self-incurred tutelage…Dare to know! Have courage to use your own reason!-that is the motto on enlightenment”-What is Enlightenment? Kant
