First: develop, analyze, and evaluate two or three required course readings we have covered in class so far.
Explain the content of these readings in a way that is both thorough and concise.
You should not only give occasional quotes here and there to support miscellaneous points, but should provide an account for the whole readings in a way that considers the full context of the reading.
You should also connect the readings together, so that we can see how the material in one reading might engage with the other reading. In this way, your examination of the course material should integrate all of the content together into one thematic whole.
Note that you are allowed to re-use parts of the writing material from your BWAW assignments, as long as you provide a footnote referencing your previous work. However, you are not allowed to simply copy-and-paste several paragraphs or your whole your BWAW assignment(s) into this paper.
The following are the list of readings you may write your paper on (pick two or three):
- James Rachels, “The Challenge of Cultural Relativism”
- Martin Luther King, Jr., “Letter from Birmingham Jail”
- Susan Moller Okin, “Is Multiculturalism Bad for Women?”
- Peter Singer, “Moral Mammals” (atheist position)
- John Hare, “Moral Mammals” (theist position)
- Marilyn McCord Adams, “Horrendous Evils and the Goodness of God”
- Thomas Aquinas, “Treatise on God”
- Plato, Republic (Book VII)
- WK Clifford, “The Ethics of Belief”
- Rene Descartes, Meditations on First Philosophy, Meditations 1-3
- John Locke, An Essay Concerning Human Understanding
