I’m working on a philosophy discussion question and need support to help me learn.
The purpose of this Extra Credit Discussion is to allow you to reflect some more on the ramification of John Locke’s moral and political theory, with regard to the notion of property.
John Locke: Second Treatise of Government, Chapter V (Links to an external site.). Please read Section 28 of Chapter V. of John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government.
Click on ‘Reply’ to create your Opening Discussion POST in response to the prompts below. In your post, please address the following:
- In Section 28 of Chapter V. of his ‘Second Treatise of Government’, John Locke seems to define the right to property as the result of one’s labor. But what about the ownership of natural resources? Do you think that Locke’s theory would allow for the ownership of land (or water, or air)?
- In Locke’s ‘acorns and apples’ example, what would happen if someone bought the land with the oak trees or apple trees on it? Does this include ownership of the acorns and apples then as well, even though then there seemingly is no labor involved? Carefully explain your reasoning.
Respond to at least two of your classmates. In order to respond to a classmate, open the classmate’s post and click ‘Reply’. If you agree with your classmate’s view, please provide an additional example to support his or her view. If you disagree, please provide a concrete counter-example. Please make sure to be specific in your remarks, and carefully explain your reasoning.
You must create your POST before you can reply to your classmates. Therefore, you should create your POST a day or two before the discussion deadline.
Your initial post should be about 200-300 words in length, and your responses to classmates should each be about 100-200 words in length, but feel free to be as detailed as you wish.
Your post and your responses must be written in proper English (correct spelling and grammar, and appropriate style). It is recommended to write your post and responses using a word processing program and copy and paste the completed post and responses. This will avoid losing work in case of internet outage, etc. You are encouraged to comment on your classmate’s feedback to your initial post and keep the (civilized!) discussion going.
**(After writing the initial post , I will provide you with two of my peers discussion post in order to reply to them , because its part of the discussion as stated up )
