Professor Andreas Teuber
Andreas Teuber



Drawing on the reading and your own considered opinion and good judgment, answer the question(s) on the following pages.

In defending your position, offer what you believe are the most principled arguments you can make. Think of arguments against your position, of arguments that might be made against it, and respond to them.

In thinking of objections to your argument, think of the best possible objections that someone on the other side might be able to come up with, i.e., give yourself a hard time. If you can respond to the other side at its strongest rather than at its weakest point that can only help to strengthen your own position and make it that much more persuasive.
