QUESTION ONE!

In Power A Radical View(PRV), Steven Lukes provides a graphic description of the three views of power he labels one-dimensional, two-dimensional and three -dimensional(see figure 1,p,35). In this figure, Luke distinguishes between power and not-power . Perhaps the least intuitive distinction is his distinction between manipulation and persuasion; the manipulation of one actor by another is a manifestation of power whereas the persuasion of one actor by another is not. The concept of authority transcends this boundary such that authority can manipulate and it can persuade.Its ability to manipulate is one of its power capacities;its ability to persuade is not.

Using chapter one AS your primary source, PLEASE EXPLAIN the importance of this distinction between manipulation and persuasion to the underlying notion of power at work as defined by Lukes. WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF POWER that makes this distinction possible? Do you find this distinction persuasive , as the terms is used by Lukes? Why or why not?

Question 2!!

In YOUR analysis , under what condition may political power be legitimately exercised ? How does your answer to this question relate to that Plato? Consistent ? Inconsistent ? Some of both? Be sure to Clearly fined the operative terms paying attention of how your definitions relate to those you might infer from Plato’s Republic and how they lead to your analysis. Use the assigned readings in addition to your analysis to justify your definitions, keeping in mind the constraints of good definitions discussed by Lukes. Specifically, that definitions must be “suited for description and explanation” as discussed by Lukes in Chapter Two of Power A Radical View(PRV) Luke 2005, 63
