[SOLVED] Final self-evaluation..

[SOLVED] Final self-evaluation..

For this final self-evaluation, you are to write an essay on your work over the course of this semester. It should be roughly 750 words in length. This essay will be both a reflection on the work you have done and the progress you have made and an argument about your learning and the goals you have achieved. In this self-evaluation, you are to do several things:
Evaluate your engagement with the class. How well did you meet the expectations that were set out for you in the course syllabus? How did your engagement with the texts and with the class activities (reading annotations, class discussions, discussion boards, writing assignments, etc.) deepen your understanding of the issues we discussed in class (such as disciplinary power, the source of a legitimate government authority.)? How did your engagement with these activities improve your mastery of the relevant skills (writing, reading philosophical texts, analyzing arguments, etc.—here, you can refer to the course objectives on the syllabus)? Be specific: You are making a case for your performance, so you should talk about specific activities or assignments, discuss your participation in this assignment, and what you got out of it. You may mention the discussion boards topics and what you learned from them; topics such as monarchy bs representation with philosophers like Hobbes, Mill, and Christiano.
Explain your goals (especially goals set out in mid-term self-evaluation) and evaluate how you met them. What learning goals did you have in this course? Pay special attention to the goals we discussed during your mid-term evaluation, and explicitly mention these. You may have trouble participating during class, emphasize that. What did you do to work toward these goals? Did you achieve them? To what extent? Again, be specific, and present evidence (in the form of work you did) to make a case regarding how well you met these goals.
Related to the above: What progress have you made in the course? What can you do now that you couldn’t do before? What skills do you have that you can apply to future assignments? (Or what skills did you improve upon/hone?) What readings or sections from the course did you find most impactful?
Your self-evaluation should not just recognize your accomplishments, but also represents a moment for critical reflection. What questions do you still have that weren’t answered in this course? What do you wish you had done differently?
List of topics discussed throughout the course:
1- Millett argues that women and other marginalized groups undergo an ‘interior colonization’, whereby they internalize the ideology of the dominant group, and thereby become complicit in their own oppression, conforming to this oppressive ideology and in turn enforcing it on other members of the marginalized group (e.g., on other women). How useful of a concept is ‘interior colonization’? What are examples of other groups that undergo interior colonization? What are the ideologies that they internalize, and how do these ideologies oppress them? How does the dominant group benefit from the implementation of this ideology?
2- Thoreau argues very passionately that when your conscience conflicts with the dictates of a legislative body (e.g., your nation’s parliament or congress), you should always follow your conscience and not the law: “Must the citizen ever for a moment, or in the least degree, resign his conscience to the legislator? Why has every man a conscience, then? I think that we should be men first, and subjects afterward. It is not desirable to cultivate a respect for the law, so much as for the right. The only obligation which I have a right to assume, is to do at any time what I think is right” (“Civil Disobedience,” p. 29). What arguments can be offered in support of his view? Against his view? Is his view defensible?
3- Imagine that Hobbes, Mill, and Christiano are having a debate on monarchy vs. representative government (i.e., democracy). How would each of them argue for their own view? How would Hobbes try to refute the arguments of Mill and Christiano, and how would they try to refute his arguments?
4- Imagine that Hobbes, Mill, and Christiano are having a debate on monarchy vs. representative government (i.e., democracy). How would each of them argue for their own view? How would Hobbes try to refute the arguments of Mill and Christiano, and how would they try to refute his arguments?
5-Often, Charles Mills’s discussion of the racial contract intersects with issues of power and epistemology; he writes that the racial contract essentially involves (for whites) an ‘epistemology of ignorance. How does the racial contract connect with some of the issues we discussed in the first section of the course—e.g., power, dominant discourse, disqualified knowledge, epistemic authority, privilege, etc.? How do you think Mills would argue that these factors—or some of these factors—interact to generate the kind of ideal theory written by Rawls, Nozick, etc.—the kind of theory that ignores issues of race and of other marginalized people? In other words, how would Mills argue that these factors explain why academics produce ideal theory rather than non-ideal theory?
