TOPIC: Philosophical Theory: Writing Test
(do ALL of the below in your paper)
Pick any philosophical theory from the textbook. Be sure to name the particular author for that theory. (It’s best to stick to chapters 1 and 2, but you may go beyond if you wish).
Explain what the consequences surrounding your selected theory. (Why should anyone care about your topic? Why do you care?)
For whatever theory you pick, also pick a competing and opposing theory and explain that theory too.
Argue for the theory you feel best addresses the situation and explain why. Explain where the other theory falls short.

I expect this paper to look like a real academic paper, and that means proper margins, grammar, spelling. Separating your work into coherent paragraphs. Having an intro and conclusion.
Strength of sources will be a factor in your grade. Make sure your sources are reputable and relevant. So medical academic journal articles are better than tabloid newspaper articles, etc. Do not cite Wikipedia as your source, instead check wikipedia’s sources and perhaps use those.
You will be graded on three metrics: STYLE, UNDERSTANDING, and ARGUMENT.
Style accounts for 50% of your paper grade, Understanding 30%, and Argument 20%.
Style means grammar, spelling, the look of the paper, did you follow all the guidelines? Did you answer all the questions and provide all the information the prompt asks for?
Understanding means did you really understand the theory you discussed? Did you get it right? Did you explain it with enough detail? How strong and trustworthy are your sources?
Argument means was your analysis of the theory or situation evenhanded, comprehensive, and fair? Did you make a good argument? You will need to do more than just say “I feel, for me, in my personal opinion”, instead make an argument in such a way that all rational people should be obliged to accept it. A good proven path is to either argue for superior outcomes or for some duty-bound principle that tends to work generally.
