Explain what John Locke understands the purpose of punishment to be.
This is an exegetical essay, meaning that your goal is to explain the argument as it is stated in the text. Locke discusses punishment predominantly in Chapters 2 &3, so you might want to begin there.
Each Prompt Response should have minimally a thesis, introduction, body (that makes direct reference to the text as evidence), and conclusion. Please see the grading rubric for essays for more details.
