In a seminar he taught on Social Philosophy, Dr. King asked the students on the final exam the following questions:
(1) There is implicit in the teachings of Adam Smith and Karl Marx a theory of human nature. Point out what that theory is in each and show how it affects the social theory of each man.
(2) Marx may be called a child of the enlightenment. Discuss his theory of society in light of this.
(3) Would Smith or Marx or both support the non-violent theory of social change? Explain.
How would you answer those questions?
