Students should prepare a 5-to-7 page paper (which excludes bibliography and endnotes) analyzing the 4 books by Voltaire. Marx/Engels, Hoffer, and Memmi. How do they address man’s alienation in modern society and how do their solutions for man’s alienation compare with and differ from each other? Do not use any secondary sources other than the textbook.
There are two questions to answer: (1) How do they address man’s alienation in modern society and (2)how do their solutions for man’s alienation compare with and differ from each other?
The key here is to define the word “alienation”. Look it up in a popular dictionary. Then go to the online Oxford English Dictionary on the Sterne Library “Databases” website. Read through its long definition of alienation and employ this definition throughout your paper in dissecting the views of Voltaire, Marx/Engels, Hoffer, and Memmi.
