Humanities II: Man and Revolution.
Stanton School District, Wilmington, DE.; John Dickinson High School, Wilmington, DE.
"Man and Revolution," the second syllabus in a sequential program, provides 11th grade students with a humanities course that deals heavily in political theory. The rationale, objectives, guidelines, methods, and arrangement are the same as those described in SO 004 030. The introductory unit, followed by further units, helps students define and analyze revolution comparing and contrasting political, social, and economic revolution, and moreover, evolutionary and revolutionary change. Unit I discusses the idea of rebellion and conditions that foster revolutions. Unit II presents the concept that law in a time of irrationality protects the basic values in society and, moreover, preserves freedoms for the majority. Focusing on the art of politics, Unit III introduces political theories by Plato, Aristotle, Machiavelli, Aquinas, Montesquieu, Rosseau, Locke, Kant, Mill, Hegel, Marx, and Lenin. Unit IV offers economic concepts relevant to the development of a technological society and related social problems; concepts on totalitarianism, communism, and existentialism, and youth's rebellion against the establishment. Civil disorder and dissent is presented in Unit V. Related documents are SO 004 030 and SO 004 031. (SJM)
