To write a short (1000 words or more, double spaced, standard font) philosophy paper on a topic of your choice in consultation with the instructor. You will be graded on clarity of thought and the ability to illustrate an understanding of the topics and themes of one (or some) of the major authors weve covered in class. One element of this understanding will be the appropriate use of textual support. That is, the use of quotations from the primary texts, and the ability to assimilate that information in your own words, with your own examples. I do NOT want to see merely regurgitated lecture notes.
