A222 – week 26 – Plato and the variety of arguments for political obligations

A little thing like the British Juggling Convention doesn’t get in the way of my running and also doesn’t get in the way of my studying. I need to use my official Easter break for Bungay, so am continuing to study whilst away at the convention, even if the promised quiet study room was locked and there were a couple of fire alarms in addition to workshop attendees to contend with.

This week started the final section of the module, looking at political philosophy. The first week is normally an introduction, which was helpful as the workload is often a little bit less. The very basics were introduced and we looked at a bit of Plato and Novick and the parental analogy and fair play arguments for political obligations. I disagreed with pretty much all of the examples, which was interesting, and made it look like I have philosophical anarchistic leanings, which was unexpected. I shall have to see how that develops through the rest of the subject.
