Critical Essay Guidelines FORMAT: Prepare your paper as a Microsoft Word file. Single-space the body of your paper; you may double-space between the headings (Introduction, Background Explanation and Critical Evaluation) described below. Use 1” margins on all sides. Use a font that is no larger than Times New Roman at 12 pt. and no smaller than Times New Roman at 10 pt. Put your name, course name, section and the date in a header on top of all pages. Include page numbers. LENGTH, TOPIC, ETC.: Write a 2 – 3 page (single-spaced) (1500 words) critical response on your topic. Back up your discussion with direct quotation from the relevant text, preferably short quotes, such as single sentences and (even better) crucial phrases. Leave out words or phrases using…ellipses…, etc. Less than 1/4 page total of your paper should be direct quotation. Cite any direct quotes simply by giving text title and page number in parentheses; the page number will either be from the textbook or what’s posted on Blackboard. For example, such a citation might look like: (Schoedinger, 25). Include a “Works Cited” page at the end of your paper citing the primary philosophic text from Schoedinger’s textbook. No other sources should be used. Treat your intended audience as someone who has some familiarity with philosophy generally, but no familiarity with the details of what you are writing on. STRUCTURE: In this critical response, you will do all and only the following three things, putting each under its OWN SECTION HEADING: A. INTRODUCTION Begin with a one-sentence introductory paragraph where you very briefly say what you will be doing in the rest of the critical response, one which has the exact form: “In this critical response, I will consider <insert chosen topic>, and then I will argue that <insert statement of main thesis>.” For example: “In this critical response, I will consider Socrates’ views on a worthwhile life, and then I will argue that the worthwhile life is nothing more or less than the life of pleasure.” B. BACKGROUND EXPLANATION Explain (in one-half to 1 page), as clearly as you can, the background to your chosen topic, including any relevant discussion in the text, and also including any relevant theories, arguments, objections, crucial notions and distinctions, etc. C. CRITICAL EVALUATION Critically evaluate (in 1½ – 2 pages) your chosen topic. This involves explaining and defending your thesis on the topic. In doing this, address relevant material from your “ Background Explanation” section. Also, you are encouraged (but not required) to anticipate potential objections and reply to them. Throughout your critical evaluation, pay careful attention (even if just informally) to the criteria of a good argument. This applies both when you are considering others’ arguments and when you are giving your own. GRADING: Grading will be based partly on whether or not you have successfully followed the instructions above (including the format requirements). Each defect in terms of failure to satisfy the instructions will cost you points. Any paper which completely ignores all instructions, however, will receive a zero. Barring prior consent from me or documented and sufficiently excusing special contingency, late papers will be graded in accord with the late policy on the syllabus. Grading will also be based on the writing quality. Here I have in mind things like: is the paper clear, concise, grammatical and accurate? Does it provide necessary explanations and avoid irrelevant material?

Essay Assignment: Due December 6th, on Blackboard by 11:59 PM. Note: At least one draft (hardcopy, handed up in class) should be given to the instructor one week before due date (last date to give instructor draft is 1st December). If draft is not given, 20% will be taken off final grade for essay. Assignment Objective: This assignment is intended to provide you with the opportunity to reflect upon the course and material over the semester. Instructions: In this essay you will need think back prior to the semester and construct how you would have described ‘the self.’ Consider as your guide the many ways that the self has been studied over the course of the semester. For instance, you might consider the ways we have discussed: (1) the nature of the soul, (2) personal identity, (3) the relationship to others, (4) the ‘racial’ or ‘gendered’ self, (5) the self and freedom, (6) the social influences (economics, technology, and consumerism, for example) upon your self-development, etc. You should select one to two dimensions of the self and provide a description of what you thought about those prior to the course. Then, give a description of what you think about that or those dimension(s) of the self now. Be sure to reference the course material, either through the literature, or an author, or a driving concept from the course that you can explain in reference to the concept(s) you now hold. Within your discussion provide a comparison of what you thought prior to the course to what you now think of those dimension(s) of the self. In what ways has your conception of the ‘self’ changed, stayed the same, become enriched (or not). Be sure to give some explanation as to what has changed, or has not changed, and in what ways. Format: The paper should be in Times New Roman font, size 12, and double spaced. It should be about 1,200 words (approx. 4-5 pages). You will be required to have a bibliography and a cover page which includes the following: 1) The title of your paper. 2) Your name. 3) Your Student ID number. Citations: The recommended style of citation is Chicago (please see Blackboard for guidelines). You can use other styles if you like but the most important thing is to remain clear and consistent in the referencing style that you use. Please use at least 2-3 citations. Instruction for upload: Please upload it online onto Blackboard on the tab on the left hand side, entitled ‘Final Essay’ before midnight on December 6th. No hard copy is needed, but, as stated above, you will be required to give a hard copy of the draft at least one week before to the instructor. Grading: The final essay will be graded on: (1) how the instructions of the assignment were followed, (2) the accurateness and clarity in descriptions of course material (authors, core concepts, arguments, etc.), (3) the precision/correctness of writing, and (4) accuracy of referencing style.
