[SOLVED] Socrates (Apology)

Socrates (Apology): For section one of your essay, provide two reasons why Socrates argues that “the unexamined life is not worth living”(41). Be sure to explain how and why Socrates arrives at this claim as you describe these points. In section two of your essay, provide two or three points regarding what you think about Socrates’ claim. Essays must provide close readings of the text by explaining philosophical arguments, concepts, and ideas. Students are welcome to practice making original arguments and counterarguments in their essays. However, in no case should a proper reading and exposition of the text be sacrificed. Essay Template Overview and DescriptionThe essay must have equally divided sections ( about 2 pages each). Introduction: The purpose of the Introduction is to provide an overview for readers of the entire essay. That is, by the time a reader has completed the Introduction, they should be able to understand what the essay is about and why they should be convinced by the essay. Introductions to essays should accomplish three things. (1) Briefly describe the topic of the essay (students may opt to use anecdotes or make some interesting comments, among other things); (2) Provide the main idea or thesis (theses can be argumentative, explanatory, or descriptive); (3) Provide an overview of what will be accomplished in the two or three sections of the essay. Section One: In the first section, students provide a reading of the text, demonstrating their knowledge of the critical arguments and terms that the philosopher is using in their text. Section Two: In the second section, students provide either an exposition of arguments and terms that they find interesting and/or provide an argument for a case the student wants to make in the essay.Conclusion: Students need to provide an ending or conclusion for the essay. Conclusions can come in many different forms. Some options include summarizing the main points of the essay, offering some lingering thoughts or questions from the discussion in the essay, or offering thoughts about areas for further research regarding the discussion in the essay. Conclusions can also combine some of these approaches. Introduction (no more than ¾ of a page): Be sure to briefly describe your topic, include the thesis (forthe entire essay), and a layout (of the entire essay)Section One: Summary and Analysis of Reading (at least 2 pages): What did the author say and why? Section Two: Make this section your own!Options include Reflections, Exposition of Critical Termsand/or an Original Argument Conclusion (about ¼ of page; could be a little longer)

[SOLVED] Leo Toylstoy and Richard Taylor

Compare and contrast Leo Tolystoy & Richard Taylor. Both authors should be included in the thesis.The paper is to be three to five pages long, double-spaced, and based on the research that you have done for your presentation. As we said in class, you can choose any article from the book, but please let me know if you are doing this before you start writing. If one of the papers you have already written involved the topic of your presentation, you will have to choose another topic.As usual, it should include (1) the introduction that states your thesis, (2) the body of the paper in which you support your thesis with evidence and/or argument, and (3) the conclusion. The body has to include at least one comparison with the argument from another article in the textbook. This latter argument should either support the main argument of your essay, or be used as a counterargument against your main argument. In any case, your essay must contain at least one counterargument. If you do not use the second text as a counterargument, you may make a counterargument that you thought of yourself; and then you have to answer that opposing argument.You have to make sure to use at least one or more secondary sources, which have to be cited properly in the MLA style.Note that in writing this paper you can include your own personal opinion about the argument that you have presented. You may do so in one of two ways: either (1) include your opinion in the conclusion, or (2) make an argument against the author upon whom you based your presentation. If you choose the second option, remember to make your critical argument part of your thesis.
