In your philosophy final, you will write a short essay addressing the problem of how this introduction to philosophy relates to your life.
The title of the paper will be “Your Name: A Philosophical Summation,” “Your Name’s Apology,”
“A Prince George’s Symposium.” Or something like that.
In this paper, you will take three of our main ideas and show how they help to explain your life.
Your paper will have a 1-2 sentence introduction, setting the scene—telling a bit about the class, naming the three ideas that interested you the most, and then explaining in 1-4 sentences how these ideas relate to you.
The body of the paper will contain the following:
I. Main Idea 1
A. State the idea
B. Explain it
C. Explain what it has to do with you. Be totally specific and precise—names, places etc. You may fictionalize. Add images and videos if you wish
II. Main Idea 2–same outline as above
III. Main Idea 3–same outline as above
The paper should have a cover sheet that is a work of art. See my tips on how to do this final.
This paper should be more of a mediation–you should spend time on it and write it in a very authentic way.
