POLITICAL THEORY FINAL EXAM Please answer question 1, and EITHER Question 2 Option A or Question 2 Option B.

The extra credit grade will either replace your lowest grade of the term in calculating the final grade or, if the essay is VERY good, will automatically bump your grade up by a half grade. Length: Approximately 3 pages for each essay. QUESTION 1: Discuss Marx: What is Marx’s view of human nature? What is “historical materialism”? What is bad about capitalism?

QUESTION 2 Option A: Discuss J.S. Mill: What are his major points in the readings we have done?
