Introduction to Philosophy
PAPER TOPIC III
Drawing on the reading and your own sound reasoning and good judgment, answer both questions on the following pages. In arguing for your position, think of the arguments that might be made against it, and respond to them. In defending your position, offer what you believe are the most principled arguments you can make.
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 opinion and make it that much more persuasive.
Papers may be between 5 and 6 pages, or longer if you think that is necesary. Papers are due, in class, on Tuesday, November 11th, 2003
