As we discussed in class, you will be required to submit a response to three questions (minimum should be around 500 words each) found at the beginning of the chapters of your textbook.
One question per chapter — you can’t answer multiple from one chapter. I.e., one from mind, one from ethics, one from politics.
You MUST reference the textbook. If you don’t, there will be a severe grade reduction for each question.
If you choose to include things from outside the textbook, they must be either (1) from primary sources–i.e., they must come from the hand of a philosopher him/herself. For example, if you want to write about utilitarianism, you can use John Stuart Mill or Jeremy Bentham as a reference. Or (2) from plato.stanford.edu or iep.utm.edu. Using any other source without checking with me first will result in a severe grade reduction.
Your answers will be due on CANVAS on the day our final exam is scheduled: DECEMBER 12 by midnight
