Mariamawit Melesse Dr. Philosophy #151.21/22 The human person Outline of critical essay assignment I. Introduction:  Start by explaining that both “work” we here talking about labor. (both Locke and Marks talk about it)  Give definition of labor by both authors. Locke defines labor as work that has value (useful value), Marx says that labor is a means of survival, work we must do to survive. But he also explains that it destroys the human soul as well.  Thesis: Both authors understand that work is important. Locke says that its valuable and Marx says that its essential for survival. On the other hand, Locke says that Money takes the value from the hard work of people. But Marx says that the object that the worker worked on takes the value out of the worker. II. Explains Locke’s account of the natural origin of property:  Define property according to Locke: property=body+labor, but is limited in state of nature.  Property shows our intention towards others.  Also distinguishes the effort and time put into the property. (difference in value)  Property is limited to what an individual consumes. Transition sentence: in contrast to Locke, Marx believes that the worker looses a piece of him while working. III. Explain Marx’s account of alienated labor:  Marx describes the work done by the worker as “Alienated labor”.  He says the worker feels alienated from the object: worker has no rights to things he produced, object is more valuable than worker, worker can’t afford object they made.  He also says that the worker is alienated for the activity of working: it repetitive (becomes routine), not stimulating, “forced labor”, animalistic, its dehumanizing (worker are kind of like on “autopilot”).  Contrarily work should be healthy and signify something important in our lives. (with further explanation)  But according to Marx work isn’t healthy for human being, at least the type of work the workers in his book are doing. He talks about how they loose themselves while doing this type of work. IV. Critical analysis:  In the first paragraph: Similarities between what the two authors argument about work: they both agree that its necessary for human beings to work, we earn money from working, we work for others.  Second paragraph: contrast between Locke’s and Marx opinion. Marx thinks that working doesn’t help the human in any way, he says that it turns him into an animal. Locke says that work is valuable, that its made up of a person’s effort and time.  Third paragraph: Locke is more convincing than Marx. Locke talks about all types of works; whereas, Marx focuses on one particular type of work and generalizes it. Locke is more convincing because he’s relatable. V. Conclusion:  Even thought there are similarities, locke is more convincing than Marx. Locke talks about all types of works; whereas, Marx focuses on one particular type of work and generalizes it. Locke is more convincing because he’s relatable.
