ANALYTICAL SCHEME


LEVELS-----------DEFINITION/NARRATIVE JUSTIFICATION



Intellectual

Religious

Social

Economic

Protective (military (external), police (internal)

Political

Deal with each "level"individually. First, define what you understand is, for example, "intellectual development." Then, narratively justify how you think the world has developed on this basis over the past 100 years. Please do not copy material from other sources. There are "correct" responses. They should be your own personal vews. We know that the world is a very diverse place and generalizations are hard to make, in that some areas or countries have "developed" astoundingly over the past century while others may have stagnated or even gotten worse in some ways. Yes, "development" may also have negative results for social life. Your responses to each level do not have to be extensive. Just try to stretch your mind beyond the narrow confines of Puerto Rico and begin to think "globally."
