Instructions for completing the paper are as follows:
Title— (Yes/No question of philosophy voted on by class and approved by instructor.)For example, ‘Is it wrong to spend $10K on a handbag?’
Section #1—one word… “yes” or “no” suffices. Simply say how you will answer the question. (For example, “YES”.)
Section #2— What have scholars(JSTOR!) said who disagreewith your position? Quote exactly threesources and be sure to state the reasons for their disagreement. (Exact format of footnotes is up to you, though it is imperative that you carefully cite all your sources. It is recommended that you select the style used in your major field’s professional publications.) Begin each paragraph with the phrase, “It seems that buying a $10K handbag is NOT wrong, for as John Q. Capitalist says, “…””
Section #3— What have other scholarssaid on behalf of your position? Again, document exactly threescholars who agreewith you and state the reasonsthey do so. Begin with the phrase, “On the contrary, it seems that buying a $10K handbag IS wrong, for as Frugal Francis says, “…””
Section #4—This is where you explain why you take your position. Argue for your views with evidence and avoid fallacies. It is recommended that you divide this section into three tightly focused and short paragraphs that provide three different arguments for the truth of your position. Remember, your position is not established by the bad reasoning of your opponents. Reserve all attacks for section #5. Begin this section saying, “I answer that buying a $10K handbag is immoral because…”
Section #5—Rebuteachof the reasons given by your opponentsin section #2.
