This module is a resource for lecturers
This section provides a suggestion for a post-class assignment for the purpose of assessing student understanding of the Module. Suggestions for pre-class or in-class assignments are provided in the Exercises section.
The following assignment is proposed to be completed within two weeks after the Module:
Read through A Letter Concerning Toleration by John Locke. In thinking about the issues Locke faced, i.e. conflicts between different religious traditions in 17 th-century Great Britain, consider how such divisions face your society. Write your own letter on toleration, one that provides ethical justifications for the positions you need to articulate in relation to your social and political system. The written assignment can be between 500 and 1000 words.
