Compare and contrast the Enlightenment (Rousseau, Kant, Emerson) with the Post-Enlightenment (Dostoyevsky, Nietzsche, Freud, Woolf, Achebe) theory of personhood. What, at base, is the human person in terms of its essential facilities and activities? Next, provide an argument that links your authors’ competing views of selfhood to their views about political association. That is, given what we are, how do they think we should govern and be governed? Finally, explain with argumentation what a ‘happy’ person would be in both eras, given the conditions of those forms of political association.
