I recently created a short video that summarizes my lecture on how to write a short 3-5 philosophy paper. I thought I’d share it with people in case they want to use it.
Here are the handouts I give my students.
- Presenting, Explaining, and Evaluating Arguments
- What I’m Looking For
- A Method for Extracting Arguments
NOTE: I can’t really take much credit for the Present, Explain, and Evaluate method outlined here. It’s what I was taught in undergrad. I was surprised to see it taught the exact same way by one of my graduate professors. Then I discovered that similarity is linked to Fred Feldman. All of my professors who taught me this method had connections to him.
