You must write 250-500 words addressing this topic. Write out your answer in a Word .doc and upload it here.
You will be asked to respond briefly (250-500 words) to a text or philosophical issue in four “Response Papers,” each worth five percent toward your final grade. Each “Response Paper” should have the same basic form: first, track the main thrust of the assigned text. Pick out the key points, and outline what’s at stake. Then, I expect you to respond critically to the text, taking a side on the issue, making an argument, pointing out some insightful implications, and solidifying your position with good reasoning, etc. A successful “Response Paper” addresses itself to both of these components. You are expected to engage critically and thoughtfully with the text or issue, above all.
