Here’s an opportunity for extra credit!  Take advantage of this, especially if you disliked your grade on the second oral exam.

Locate a short passage from literature (a poem, monologue, or prose passage) that corresponds to a specific idea in a chapter of Warburton, Philosophy: the basics–an idea such as the design argument, significant form, dualism, etc. etc. etc.  Your chosen passage should be longer than two sentences but shorter than a page.

 

(NB: poetryfoundation.org is a great place to find poetry.  Consider monologues from Shakespeare as well.)


Then, write a 500-1000 word essay explaining the passage and how it relates to the idea you have chosen.  Email this essay to me, with “PHL 101 Extra Credit” in the subject line, no later than Friday, May 3rd at 11:59 PM.
