PHI 200 Week 5 Written Assignment Final Argumentative Paper Death Penalty Recent

Three important sub-disciplines of philosophy are addressed in this course; ethics, epistemology, and religion. For this paper you will develop an argument that includes your own view on one specific topic relating to one of these sub-disciplines.  A list of topics to choose from is listed below.  It is recommended that you choose a topic to write on that you have already encountered, or that you have thought about previously. (One way of thinking about this is to think of an issue that worries you, interests you, or enrages you.)

For instance, if you choose to write about whether children should be spanked (this is only an example), you would present the argument for spanking and against spanking; you would then state your position relative to this issue and defend your own view. You would also utilize the theories that we saw in the ethics chapter to provide support for your position, and draw on those theories to clarify the debate itself.

You may choose a topic from ethics, epistemology, or religion, but you will need to make sure you do the following for whatever topic you choose:

Identify the specific issue

Make clear one basic dispute over this issue

Clarify the arguments on both sides of the issue

State which side of the issue you find to be better defended

Explain why you find that side of the debate superior

State your own view, and defend it with an argument

Provide at least two references for each side of the debate

 

In order to write a strong paper, you will need to clearly and specifically present both sides of the debate using at least five (5) academic resources in addition to the course text.

 

Possible topics:

 

Ethics

 

The death penalty

Assisted suicide

Reinstating the military draft

Pornography

Inheritance taxes

School prayer

Stem cell research

Obligations to future generations

Gay marriage

 

Epistemology
