I want you to chose one of the following topics to write on. Please write 1000 to 1500, and be sure to cite your sources. Write on one of the two of the following:
- Explain and evaluate the theory of ethics known as “Utlitarianism.”
- Explain and evaluate the “Argument from Evil.”
The point of these papers will be to focus on one particular argument or theory. The goal is not to do research (looking up stuff in the library) but to focus your thoughts on one argument or one position and dig deep. Your grade on these papers will be primarily based on the clarity of your writing, the command of the material and the “depth” of your explanations. (Which side of the issue you are on is completely irrelevant). In fact, I will give you the grading rubric I will use to assess your essays. You should use this rubric as a guide to develop your outline.
