Philosophy

In this critical paper you must compare de Beauvoir’s position with the position of either Mill or Rawls. Your basic tasks are: 1. To determine whether Mill or Rawls’ account meets de Beauvoir’s standards for the realization of freedom 2. To explain why or why not 3. To present a thesis about Mill or Rawls’ position based on whether it is compatible or incompatible with de Beauvoir’s view.

-A comparison of de Beauvoir and Mill or Rawls in which you explain the differences between each position and argue that the positions are either compatible or incompatible.
-A presentation of your own thesis about the political merit of one or more of the views you present. (You are not required to endorse any one position, but you must give reason for your claims, and those reasons should draw what you will have presented in the body of y
