abstract | view |  rights & permissions
John Locke's political philosophy is based on certain assumptions about the nature of the world and about the strategies that human beings adopt in the world. One way to understand and evaluate these assumptions is to work through a simulation exercise designed to illustrate Locke's conception ofpolitical life. In this article we describe a game based on "Of Property," Chapter V of Locke's Second Treatise of Civil Government. The exercise is designed for a group of fifteen to thirty players who have no previous exposure to Locke's philosophy; it can be played and discussed in seventy-five minutes.

The material in this note was developed for a first course in logie to illustrate a standard use of logie in analysis. The object was to present a not entirely trivial or artificial confusion that was amenable to resolution using only the tools of quite elementary logic-no modalities, no restrietions to extensional contexts. Copies o f The Problem were distributed. Then, on another day, A Solution.

John lmmerwahr The Hobbes Game
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
This article provides an account of an attempt to use games in teaching the political philosophies of Hobbes (and Locke). The idea of using games as an educational tool seems appropriate for philosophy since philosophers so often discuss games and draw examples from them. Political philosophy is especially suited for this approach since games involve human interactions similar to those discussed by political philosophers.
