20th of October 2011

Today in Social Sciences we have cheked the activities that we have to do for homework. The activity number 4 have been corected by Beatriz Antequera this activity was about the enlightenment, activity number 5 have been corected by Yolanda Abad this one was about the precedents of enlightenment and finally the activity number 6 have been corected by Daniel this was about the features of enlightenment.

After that we have talked about the political thinking, the main philosofers were:
-Voltaire: he defended that the power of the king had to limited by the Parliament, a universal tax system, religious tolerance and he strongly criticized the Church.For example a sentence of tolerance is:
" I don't agree with your opinion, but I will always defend your right to say what you think"

-Montesquie: he defended the division of powers into three institutions, (executive, legislative and judicial).

-Rousseau: he defended the social contract and the general will: this means that power lies on the people.

Then Laura Bustamante have read about the economic thinking. We have talked about the mercantilism that is an economic policy based on :

-accumulation of precious metals

-exporting goods

And also about physiocracy and we have known the most importants physiocrats that were:

-Quesnay that was one of the main physiocrats

-Adam Smith that was the pioneer of economy liberalism.

During this class we also have learned some new words that have been:

-general will that means “voluntad general”

-phisiocracy that means “fisiocracia”

For homework we have to finish to read page 6 and do exercises 11 and 12 of page 11

See you

Hello Diego,

My advice is that you read again your post. You will discover several spelling mistakes you will be able to correct without great problem. You could also add more information about the questions some of you have asked and about Voltaire´s quote. This is the correct quote:

"I don't agree with a word you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

Try to solve the challenge. It´s very interesting. Have a nice weekend.

Hello Diego!
Very good journal, I didn't see any more mistakes but you can also add in the part of the philosophers that Paqui has written a scheme about this and also about the economic thinking. And at the end of the class Yolanda Abad has given the agenda to Paqui, because Paqui has to write a note for Yolanda's mother, because yolanda needs to participate in the blog everyday.
Bye bye See you =)
