Was Alexander a “great man in history? Or not? This is actually not a question so much about Alexander, as it is about causation. In particular, who, or what, brings about change, sets the course of history?
Review the material in the Great Man Module carefully, and write a 750 to 1000 world expository essay on Alexander’s role. Was he:
1) The chief agent of change.
2) The leader/figurehead of a dynamic cultural and technological movement, with many capable contributors.
or 3) Was Alexander the beneficiary of larger forces, of a changing world? Was he simply the right man, in the right place, at the right time?
