CMPT 10/31 Political philosophy Examine which political system will allow humans to live a happy life “Politics strives for the establishment of that city or society in which contemplation is possible. A society in which if citizens want to know the truth or the justification for political, economic, or cultural behaviors of the state, it is in principle possible for them to engage in communicative and dialogical interaction.” The noble thing is the thing that helps open the sphere to communication If we have the possibility to evaluate the morality and nobility of a product, it is good Nobility is assessed by its worthiness to politics and the political/dialogical interaction Public spheres to understand behaviors of state is necessary The modern world of advertisements and materialism distracts us from political/dialogical discussion The decline in our time is the forgetfulness of political philosophy The question “why is this noble?” is rarely asked Why do we build all the material products we have?

    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.
