Every student will draw one concept from the list below, and will be expected to discuss that concept in relation to one other idea below, in a single lucid, insightful and substantive 5 minute answer. Lucidity is a matter of economy and coherence; insight is gained through both careful study and taking time to reflect on the concepts with imagination; substance is achieved through using specific examples from lecture, etc. to develop your answer. In order to do well on this final, make the following "moves" in your answer: (1) Give an introductory remark or two to set the tone, motivate and preview your "speech." (2) Overview both concepts. (3) Elaborate on them individually. (4) Discuss their relation one to another. (5) Conclude, as you would any good speech, with a summary and a decisive close. Good luck!
