Philosophy Assignment Help Include a brief summary of the relevant argument within the article you intend to critically discuss, don’t summarize the whole article, just the portion you are going to critically engage with and your critical discussion of that aspect of the article.1. select a focus narrow enough for a brief discussion. Discuss one idea or argument from the chapter.

2. Clearly identify the idea or argument, and where it appears in our texts. HIGHLIGHT OR UNDERLINE THIS PORTION. Before you explain why you think it is correct or mistaken, make sure you point us to where you find this idea in our text and explain what the idea is in a neutral way (i.e., your description of the idea/argument should be one that someone who disagreed with your judgment about it might still agree is a fair articulation of the idea).

3. Will I (the professor) be able to say what you think of that idea/argument as well as the reasons offered for that judgment? Agreeing or disagreeing with someone is a good start in responding to a philosophical idea or argument – offering clear reasons that lead you to that conclusion takes us further.

4. make good sense, and include strong reasons. Have possible (especially obvious) responses the author might make to any objections (or objections someone might make if you are agreeing with the author) been considered?Write in two full pages. The book citation is “Bonjour, Laurence. Epistemology: Classical Problems and Contemporary Responses. 2nd edition. 2010 “[supanova_question]

3) Make sure you go over the NAACP strategy, method of recruiting clients and organizing law suits. The role of the doll experiment and social science evidence, the role of important individuals in the film, and most importantly, what is the difference between Separate and Equal, both tangibly and intangibly.

Reason, Duty, and Persons

Reason, Duty, and Persons.

I want you to read Kant’s Foundation of the Metaphysics of Morals as a philosophical text (found in From Plato to Derrida Sixth Edition by Forrest E. Baird from the Philosophic Classics Series) with a clear argument: a thesis, premises (reasons for believing the thesis), and evidence to support the premises. You should organize your essay to answer the following questions in approximately 650 words:

What do you think the text is arguing?

What evidence is there in the text to support your reading?

What is the meaning of the text’s argument? Why?

What implications are there if the argument is true? Why?

Could the text be read as meaning something else?

What reasons might someone give for holding this alternative reading of the text?

Why do you find your original account of the argument and meaning of the text more persuasive than alternative readings?[supanova_question]

http://classics.mit.edu/Plato/apology.html In The Apology, Socrates argues that he was a benefit to Athens and that he should be rewarded for his behavior, not put to death.
From your reading of The Apology, explain why he believes that. Is he right or wrong? Why were the people of Athens willing to kill to suppress what he was saying? Does that make any point about how people react to the truth in general?
? Remember, this isn’t a general ramble of ideas. You are writing an essay: that means you should do some planning and thinking before drafting. You need a thesis and a set of supporting ideas.

Your assignment for this lesson is to discuss how professional obligations and duties can inform your choices on the job. When, if ever, are principles more important than consequences? In particular, I’d like you to think about when your professional obligations require that you “follow orders”, and when your professional obligations require that you “break the corporate script” and disobey orders. In a business environment, you may find yourself with multiple, conflicting orders, some of which violate ethical principles or your own value system.

Philosophy Assignment Help You will write a 1200-1500 (minimum) word reaction/position paper. There is no maximum. You will be watching the movie HOTEL RWANDA and following the instructions below. Make sure to CITE your sources. You CAN ONLY use class material to make your case. NO OUTSIDE SOURCES! (Unless we are using FACTS (like the video below, you cannot use outside opinion or analysis unless you have run it by me first.) The link to the movie description on the internet movie database is below but you must find access to the movie yourself. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0395169/
HANDY-DANDY GUIDE TO WRITING A PAPER FOR ME:
1. Introduction/Thesis: State your Thesis and introduce your paper!
the sketch of your primary claim with relevant supporting ideas (do you lean towards a universal or relativistic model of morality?)
mention the movie and how it’s relevant
here you should be making specific but not detailed (think of your introduction as your table of contents) claims/points
2. SUMMARY/SYNOPSIS– What are you reacting to? THIS SHOULD ONLY BE A SHORT SUMMARY. It should not be more than a few hundred words.
Goal: Present what you are writing about.
Identify all of the basic information: about the book/movie/documentary that you will be relating to your argument and explaining in more detail later in your paper.
the author of the piece, the title of the piece, the title of the book or journal from which it was taken (if relevant), the publisher, and the year of publication;
the topic or subject of the piece—for example, “The Triangle Shirt-Waist Fire” or “Revitalization efforts underway in Roxbury’s Codman Square.” In other words, tell what the piece is about in a word or a phrase.
Ex? In-class.
3. What is Cultural Relativism? How does the movie relate?
Explaining Cultural Relativism, the argument(s), give elaborations in terms of the movie, and how does CR arise in different circumstances in the movie?You should be using scenes from the movie and class materials (books, lectures, etc…) to explain what CR is, including the argument(s) for it.
You should be citing class materials and quoting when appropriate (from both the book and the movie).
Give examples that parallel the scenes in the movie to back up your interpretive analysis.
Ex. ? In-class.

4. .Thought Prompts/Analysis/Personal Response–
You will be choosing a side: Pro Relativism or Pro Universalism (weak or strong).
Goal: You should be writing about your naive* views as they relate to the possibility of a universal morality versus a relativistic model. You should use the movie as an entry point.
*Naive? Let’s talk about it….
I have listed a few questions below that should help you think about the case you want to make and how to relate it back to the movie. You should be connecting our discussion about cultural relativism (esp, the cultural differences argument [ie, the argument for CR) and criticisms of CR) with the themes and ideas in the movie. The questions below are NOT the writing prompts for this assignment. They are meant to get you brainstorming.
What goals does the United Nations pursue? When, if at all, is UN intervention or involvement morally permissible?
Tatsi tells her husband (scene 17, roughly 1:20:24 into the film): “You are a good man, Paul Rusesabagina.” Does she mean he is a good Hutu? If not (or if not merely that), what does it mean to be a (morally) good person?
How do you react to the piece on a (moral) personal level? Why?
How does the piece relate to your experience or your own “naive” moral perspective?
what questions does the piece raise for you — about the material, about other things?
does the piece remind you of other readings you’ve done for the class? compare and contrast the piece to those readings.

Ex. ? In-class.

4. .Thought Prompts/Analysis/Personal Response–
You will be choosing a side: Pro Relativism or Pro Universalism (weak or strong).
Goal: You should be writing about your naive* views as they relate to the possibility of a universal morality versus a relativistic model. You should use the movie as an entry point.
*Naive? Let’s talk about it….
I have listed a few questions below that should help you think about the case you want to make and how to relate it back to the movie. You should be connecting our discussion about cultural relativism (esp, the cultural differences argument [ie, the argument for CR) and criticisms of CR) with the themes and ideas in the movie. The questions below are NOT the writing prompts for this assignment. They are meant to get you brainstorming.
What goals does the United Nations pursue? When, if at all, is UN intervention or involvement morally permissible?
Tatsi tells her husband (scene 17, roughly 1:20:24 into the film): “You are a good man, Paul Rusesabagina.” Does she mean he is a good Hutu? If not (or if not merely that), what does it mean to be a (morally) good person?
How do you react to the piece on a (moral) personal level? Why?
How does the piece relate to your experience or your own “naive” moral perspective?
what questions does the piece raise for you — about the material, about other things?
does the piece remind you of other readings you’ve done for the class? compare and contrast the piece to those readings.

Struck by the surprising nature of this new policy, Doe heads to his boss’s

Struck by the surprising nature of this new policy, Doe heads to his boss’s.

Struck by the surprising nature of this new policy, Doe heads to his boss’s office and asks for an explanation. The following dialogue ensues:Doe:So, why are we supposed to pick our nose on Thursday mornings?Boss:Because I’m the boss, and because I said so.Doe:Yes, but why do you say so?Boss:Well, because it’s obviously morally required of you, and I want to ensure that all my employees are decent people.Doe:Okay, but I still don’t get it. Why is it morally required of us to pick our nose on Thursday mornings?Boss:Because I said so, dang it. Now, get out of my office.In light of our discussion on the Euthyphro question, answer the following:1.The boss is actually caught in a contradiction here. What is that contradiction, and why is it contradictory?(Hint: think of two alternative answersto the Euthyphro question.)2.Imagine that it wasn’t Doe’s boss talking, but Doe’s buddy, or Doe’s entire social circle, or even Doe himself. Would the combination of answers to Doe’s questions be any less contradictory?3.Suppose the boss answers Doe’s last question differently, by saying any of the following:a.“Well, Doe, that’s because picking the nose clears out the nasal passages and thus improves employee health. Gotta pick ‘emall!”b.“Doe, I’d explain my reasons, but I don’t think you’re quite intelligent enough to understand them. Don’t worry though, I really do have excellent reasons for why it’s morally required of you.”c.“April Fools! I was just yanking your chain. I’d never really require you to pick your nose on Thursday mornings, because of course there’s no good reason to do so.”There’s a common thread to each of these answers. What is it? How would each of these responses resolve the contradiction? What wouldeach of these responses imply about whether the boss can simply make up the moral facts, and why?4.In light of the above, what is the standard reason for rejecting divine command theory, cultural relativism, subjective relativism, and any similar moraltheory?

two to three pages in length, double-spaced, with one-inch margins, and 12-point font.
