750-1000 words (2-3 pgs).
For this paper, you may pick any assigned reading already covered in class. You will explain a central theory/argument from that reading (that you have not written on yet), then write your own philosophical response.
Your paper should have 3 sections; clearly label when each section begins in your paper (you may do this simply with section number or section title):
i. Intro (~ ¼ page): Introduction and brief summary of your paper. (In the intro, make sure to briefly and clearly state the main points you will address in paper; for example, could look something like “Philosopher A claimed B. I will claim C, for reasons D, E, F”)
ii. Exposition (1/2+ pg): Briefly, but clearly describe a key argument or theory from the chosen reading (which you will respond to in section 3). This section should primarily be in your own words, but include at least one key quote from the chosen reading.
iii. Your Philosophical Response (1-2 pgs): (Main section, spend most of paper on this). Give your philosophical response. Make sure you stay on topic. Do so in one of the following formats (do only one of these options):
Give rational objections to the argument/theory, state why it is faulty
Defend the argument from possible objections
Explain how the argument can be improved, how you would change it and why
Discuss the strengths and weaknesses, then your overall position
