Choose ONE essay from the end of the chapter that you have chosen for the focus of your paper and write paper of no more than 3 pages, (1400 words max) as follows:

Begin with a brief introduction, including a (thesis) statement of the purpose of your paper, the issue or question you will be discussing, and how you intend to proceed. Your intro should also identify the author and title of the essay you will be addressing as well as the overall purpose (thesis) of that essay. (e.g. “In his essay ”Animal Liberation”, Peter Singer defends the view that animals should be accorded “equal consideration” with humans. In my paper I will discuss what Singer means by this claim, how it differs from the claim that animals have “rights”, and why his view is untenable. My argument will be that Singer’s view rests on a mistaken premise, namely, that there is not morally significant difference between animals and human beings.”

The rest of your paper should keep the promise that you made in your opening statement. In general, a philosophy paper consists of arguments to convince the reader that a certain claim is true or false (or likely so). A philosophy paper is thus critical (as in critical thinking) and analytic rather than descriptive or factually informative.

You are advised to focus on an essay with which you have clear disagreement and can offer reasons why you disagree. This will increase the likelihood that your response will be of a critical nature, relevant to the reasoning involved in the issue, and will avoid the common fault of a response that simply restates some points of the essay under discussion, followed by various expressions of agreement that contribute nothing significant to the dialogue. See “Analysis/Critical Response” in Option One description above.
