The Social Contract According to Thomas Hobbes
This paper discusses the concept of the social contract, as described by Thomas Hobbes in his 1651 book Leviathan. Hobbes' argument is paradoxical because it is based on both the absolute power of the sovereign and the consent of those who are governed. As argued in the paper, the social contract provides a justification for the power and authority of the modern state, but a government controlled by an absolute sovereign is not legitimate.

The Right of Public Workers to Join Unions
This paper is a discussion of the debate about whether or not public workers should be allowed to join unions and engage in collective bargaining. The current struggle between public workers in Wisconsin and their Republican governor, ostensibly an economic battle to control public spending during a tough recession, rests on the question of the rights of public workers to negotiate for wages and benefits as a group. The governor’s contention is that collective bargaining encourages deals that are not in the best public interest when funds are particularly tight and dramatic cuts must be made to public sector budgets. This paper considers this counter-argument but proposes to prove that collective bargaining should be a right for all workers, regardless of the sector in which they work, and that union organization benefits both the members of a given union and the citizens in general whose taxes help to pay public worker salaries.

Kant, Dewey and Rousseau
Philosophers such as Kant, Rousseau and Dewey wrote extensively on theories of education and morality. Each had unique perspectives on what the purpose of education should be, and how children could be cultivated into adults through the instruction of morality. Kant's Lectures on Pedagogy discusses themes such as the relationship between teachers and parents, and the purpose of education. Rousseau, wrote about the education and the nature of man in Emile, and Dewey discussed the philosophy of education at length in Democracy in Education. In the present analysis, each will be briefly discussed alongside an analysis of how these theories were informed by the philosophers' respective views on morality.

In logic, the principle of contradiction is the second of the three classic laws of thought. The Law of Noncontradiction holds that it is not possible for something to be both true and not true at the same time, in the same context. The two propositions A is B and A is not B, are mutually exclusive.

Epictetus and Happiness
Epictetus is a later exponent of Stoic philosophy, popular in ancient Greece for several centuries including the first century AD. In his Stoic philosophy, Epictetus presents a picture of what human happiness consists in, and what is needed to achieve it. A very striking feature of the Stoic’s view is that philosophy is not merely an abstract, speculative exercise, but provides a moral framework, the goal of which is to teach us how to live a happy, flourishing life. As such, philosophy is something which must be practiced.
