Philosophy Essay 1
PAPER 1: Critically assess one or more problems raised against dualism or physicalism. Are they effective? Which view, in the end, is more acceptable?
The essay is to be 3-5 pages in length. Please double-space and use a 12pt Times New Roman font. MLA citations and Works Cited page required.
Additional information from my professor about the essay:
Structure of an essay: INTRODUCTION, BODY, CONCLUSION
- INTRODUCTION (First paragraph- in a short essay this may only be a few sentences):
- A: Argument
- B: Background information
- S: Structure of essay
Argument: Clearly state your argument in the opening paragraph (and be sure it is answering the question asked!)
For example, “In this paper, I will argue that Descartes’ approach to the Mind-Body Problem is incorrect.”
Don’t assume your argument will become clear as you progress through your paper.
A philosophy essay is NOT A REPORT!
It is an argument.
