Today, in social sciences, at the beginning Paqui has said us that 18 people didn't do the exercise of the blog about reading quotes of enlightened philosophers and every person who didn't do it have a negative. After that we have started the lesson about Enlightened philosophers.
Paqui has written a scheme on the blackboard that we had to complete reading the page 6 in the book about Enlightened philosophers. After we have read that page, we have completed the scheme, starting with the "Political Thinking" (criticism to Absolutism). There were three important philosophers:
-JEAN-JACQUES ROUSSEAU: He defended two things:
-The Social Contract: It was an agreement which people and the governor sign to preserve social order.
-General will: When they choose their representatives.
He defended the division of power into three institutions (executive, legislative, judicial) to avoid abuse of power.
-VOLTAIRE: He defended:
-The limitation of the power of the king by the Parliament.
-Universal Tax System (end of privileges).
-The Religious tolerance (no religions superior to others).
Then we have continued with "Economic Thinking":
Agriculture is the main economic activity and the basics of other economic activities. They also supported free trade, free industry and were against the intervention of the State in economy.
(Adam Smith) The State doesn't had to intervene in economy and economy has to be base in the law of SUPPLY AND DEMAND.
Then someone has commented that he didn't see the screen due to the light. Then Paqui has taken the curtains and she wanted to put it on the windows but the curtain was very short to cover all the windows and we have continued with the lesson.
Finally Paqui has given us time to review the exam of the next Wednesday. After Paqui has said us that the day of the exan we can came before 8:15 like every day because Paqui is going to come at 8:00 to High School if we want to have more time to do the exam.
