Midterm Study Guide
For the midterm you will be asked to identify and state of the significance of six out of
seven possible terms. For each term you need to do two things: (i) identify the author
AND the text that the term is related to (some of the terms may not have a relevant
author). (ii) State the significance of the term. For quotations you do not need to know
dates or page numbers. You should write one sentence on the identification and at least 3-
4 sentences on the significance. Every term on the test will be drawn from the following
list of terms from our lectures. This is a closed book test.
Write all your answers in the exam booklet.
Each question is worth five points. The whole exam is out of a total of 30 points.

⁃ The means may be likened to a seed, the end to a tree; and there is just the same
inviolable connection between the means and the end as there is between the seed
and the tree
⁃ If the injustice has a spring, or a pulley, or a rope, or a crank, exclusively for itself, then
perhaps you may consider whether the remedy will not be worse than the evil; but
if it is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another,
then, I say, break the law.
⁃ Moreover, any man more right than his neighbours constitutes a majority of one
⁃ Swaraj is “the constantly confirmed consciousness of being in charge of one’s destiny,
not just about liberty but about power”
⁃ Though asleep, the conscience is there, and in spite of the hypnotism it is already
speaking in them, and it may awake.
⁃ The sole meaning of life is to serve humanity by contributing to the establishment of
the kingdom of God, which can only be done by the recognition and profession of
the truth by every man.
⁃ There's another reason why you should love your enemies, and that is because hate
distorts the personality of the hater.
