Political Theory and Social TheoryInstructions:

For this assignment, you will write a 3-page argumentative essay (double spaced, in 11 or 12 point standard font –Times New Roman or Arial) drawing connections between the theories you’ve learned in this course and real-world scenarios relating to your field of study.

Apply one political theory (Socrates, Machiavelli, Marx, Weber, OR Durkheim, whom we will consider to be political theorists for this assignment) and one social theory (one of the readings on race, OR one of the readings on feminism) to a practical workplace situation. Be sure to explain the theories, apply the theories, and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of applying these theories.

A practical workplace situation can be any scenario in which someone in a position of authority or leadership has to manage others and make decisions such as how to relate to them, how to ensure their productivity, and how to reward or compensate them. Alternatively, you could write about an employee’s decisions on how to relate to a manager or supervisor, or how to relate to fellow employees. Draw from your own experiences at work.

For this essay, you will continue to follow the six-paragraph argumentative essay in the following ways:

Your introduction (first paragraph) should begin with an explanation of your theories and end with a thesis statement mentioning three ways that both theories apply to the practical situation. Or your thesis statement could mention three ways that one of the theories applies to the situation better than the other.
In the next three paragraphs, elaborate on the three ways that the theories apply to the practical situation, demonstrating the strengths of applying these theories to the situation. Or elaborate on the three ways that one of the theories is more applicable to the situation than the other.
In the fifth paragraph, refute counter-arguments by acknowledging three weaknesses of applying the theories to the practical situation, but argue that the strengths of applying each theory outweigh the weaknesses. Alternatively, you can refute the counter-arguments by acknowledging three weaknesses of applying the better theory; but then argue that this theory still applies to the situation better than the less favored theory.
In the sixth and last paragraph, restate your thesis and provide an overarching insight into the theories’ relevance for current practical situations.
