PHIL 2P05 ESSAY 1 QUESTIONS
This essay is worth 20% of your final grade and is due in class on October 21. It should be 1800–2000 words, double-space, size 12 font, with a title and a bibliography.
Your essay will present an argument for a thesis. It should have two parts (although these parts may be integrated). The first part willoffer a critical summary or explanation of the passage(s) relevant to your question. The second part will develop an argument and offer reasons to support your thesis. You will be graded on the accuracy of your exegesis and the persuasiveness of your argument (and the quality and structure of your writing, in so far as it contributes or fails to contribute to these goals). This is your chance to really engage with the text. Be creative! Be critical!
