Apply philosophical knowledge in the composition of a persuasive argumentative essay.
Compose an analogy to support the essay’s thesis.
Write an 800-900 word, single-spaced essay on the debate question. Hightlight thesis. (100)
PROMPT: Write your essay using the following paragraph outline:
Introduction: (a) Opening sentence on the importance of the question; (b) statement of your thesis for or against Cartesian dualism; and (c) a preview/roadmap for the essay.
Clarify & define the basis/criteria of your argument, e.g. logical consistency, rationality, parsimony, common sense, etc. and use it effectively to make your case.
EXAMPLE: “In this paper, I will argue Cartesian dualism offers a more parsimonious explanation of reality than Darwinian monism.”
Consider Descartes’s Arguments. Briefly present Descartes’ arguments for metaphysical dualism making reference to the text, including his analogy. Make an argument for/against Descartes’s dualism. If you argue for him offer an original analogy in support, OR if you go against him, critique his analogy.
Consider the arguments made by Opposition to Descartes: Take a stand for/against EITHER (not both) Darwinian Monism OR Sartrean Nihilism. Briefly present the argument presented against Descartes, including the philosopher’s analogy for it. If you argue for Descartes’ opposition, offer an original analogy in support, OR if you go against his opposition, critique his analogy.
Compare and contrast the analogies and give a reason why one is better than the other for describing the reality of human existence.
Conclusion: Return to the basis/criteria and explain why your position better meets the criterion than the opposing position.
You only need one original analogy (for your position) and one critique of the other side’s analogy (against your opposition). NOTE: Only use the textbook provided.
