The first essay should be 5-7 pages double spaced with standard margins in regular font.
Please include your name, a title for the paper, which essay this is (in this case, #1), which topic you are writing on (topic 1, topic 2, …), and which course this is for (Phil Law).
What I’m looking for in the papers:
A clear thesis
A clear and original defense of the thesis – that is, an argument for the thesis.
Evidence of effort
Evidence of background research including citations (MLA, Chicago, … doesn’t matter) and a reference section (reference section does not count toward page length).
I am against Jeremy’s idea of codification.
