I’m working on a philosophy report and need a sample draft to help me understand better.
Format: Your essay should be 4-5 pages long (1200-1500 words, no more or less without penalty). While graded online, papers should still be double-spaced with a 12-point font. You are responsible for keeping a digital copy of your paper. Late work without a documented excuse will be penalized at 1/3 of a letter grade for each day late (including weekend days).
Choose a particular reading from weeks 4-7, and present as accurately and clearly as possible one its main arguments. Then provide a strong criticism of the argument or the position it supports. For instance, Jennifer Lackey argues against narrow and moderate views of testimony. Outline her arguments against these views and offer a criticism of her claims. Similarly, Kurt Sylvan argues that we should have a novel category of apparent reason. What does he mean by this and why does he think it is necessary? Present a criticism of his view.
