POLS 3310 / RB Griffin Introduction to Political Theory – Spring 2009 Study Guide and Final Review Sheet Mid-Term Exam, March 10. Review all notes, journal articles, handouts, WebCT readings, lecture outlines (on WebCT) and Broadview Anthology readings. NOTE: If you are more than 20 minutes late for the exam, you will not be allowed to take Mid-term. You may make up the exam but only with required and verifiable permission and make-up will be the last day of class (see syllabus). My advice: be on time. I. What is governance? What is a “regime”? Why study political theory? What is virtue? How did philosophers and early leaders perceive governance and rulers? How do we, in the 21 st century perceive governance, leadership and virtue? What about our system of government? The financial crisis? II. Ur-Nammu: Who was he? Why was he important? What was his view of governance? Did laws or a “Code” matter? The gods? Social order? What were his goals of governance? (WebCT reading) III. Hammurabi: Who was he? Why was he important? What was his view of governance? Why is his Code important? (WebCT: Intro, codes, Epilogue) Be familiar with some of his laws. IV. Cyrus of Persia: Why did he call himself “King of the Globe”? His view of gods and power? What was the Cyrus’ Cylinder? In considering political theory, why do we look at early Middle Eastern leaders? What insight do we gain about rulers, laws, gods, perspectives on “the people”, attitudes of leaders, economics and governance?
