Phil 100, Introduction to Philosophy
Fall 2001

Paper Assignment

Due Thursday, November 29th in your discussion sections.

You are to write a 4-5 page paper on a philosophical topic of your own choosing. Your primary aim is to present and argue for your own philosophical views about some issue. You should pick a topic that relates directly to the texts and issues covered in discussion section, but ideally only half of your paper or less should consist in explaining the views of others.

This is not a research paper. You do not need to seek sources outside what you’ve read for class.

Below is a list of recommended topics. You may choose one of these topics, or you may decide upon your own topic not on this list, but if you do, you must discuss your topic with your TA (and/or Kevin) beforehand to determine whether or not it’s appropriate.
