This assignment consists of a short essay question, and a short response question. The
main intent of these questions is to ensure that you have a sound grasp of the fundamentals of the material
presented in this unit. To that end, there is a 3 to 4 page (1000 words) limit for the short essay question.
I’m not so concerned with whether you agree with a particular author or not. The quality of your answer
is based on your exposition of the competing positions, your comparative analysis of those positions and,
lastly, your argument in support of the position you defend.
