Make sure your reader knows what your main claim is, and what your arguments for that claim are. Why is it that when you get forty student papers, you can grade them in a couple of weeks, but it takes 3 months, or 6 months, or maybe a couple of years, to read a journal submission? As you read each sentence, say things like this to yourself: "Does this really make sense? When reading, set realistic goals. Pretend that your reader has not read the material you're discussing, and has not given the topic much thought in advance. Just War - A just war research paper looks at the term and also discussing its increasing debate in politics.
Sometimes that happens. Presenting and assessing the views of others If you plan to discuss the views of Philosopher X, begin by figuring out what his arguments or central assumptions are. Then ask yourself: Are the arguments good ones? He's lazy in that he doesn't want to figure out what your convoluted sentences are supposed to mean, and he doesn't want to figure out what your argument is, if it's not already obvious.
If you're to have any chance of persuading people, you have to start from common assumptions you all agree to. In a philosophy paper, it's OK to use this verb as much as you need to. If you understand the material you're writing about, and if you aim your paper at such a reader, you'll probably get an A. What can be left out?

Or he could have presented reasons for thinking that A is false. This will of course not be true. Discourse Analysis - Discourse Analysis research papers examine how this method of thinking stems from the philosophical notion that there is no one single meaning, part of deconstruction, first identified by French thinker Jacques Derrida.
If you get stuck writing, it's probably because you don't yet know what you're trying to say. But the student hasn't really philosophically engaged with Philosopher X's view in an interesting way.
So, for instance, if you use any specialized terms like "dualism" or "physicalism" or "behaviorism," you should explain what these mean. How good are the arguments you offer? I think they forgot about the ms. That is why it is important to think about these questions before you begin to write.
Do not forget to turn to the primary sources.
Don't think of this as an annoying preliminary to doing the real philosophy. If you knew that your referee report was going to be attributed to you, you might read the paper carefully, think carefully before raising objections, and try to finish in a reasonable time. If you can't see anything the view has going for it, maybe that's because you don't have much experience thinking and arguing about the view, and so you haven't yet fully understood why the view's proponents are attracted to it.
It makes good work hard to publish and creates incentives to write bad work. But you should try to come up with your own arguments, or your own way of elaborating or criticizing or defending some argument we looked at in class. Almost all philosophy relies on the use of examples, both for illustrative and persuasive purposes.
If the argument is one that some intelligent and reasonable philosophers would find plausible, then that should be good enough. In a philosophy paper, it's OK to use this verb as much as you need to. If you don't explain what you take Philosopher X's view to be, your reader Philosophical papers book judge whether the criticism you offer of X is a good criticism, or whether it Philosophical papers book simply based on a misunderstanding or misinterpretation of X's views.
Actual Idealism - Actual idealism research papers examine the system of philosophy, developed by Giovanni Gentile, that thought is all that truly exists and that the act of thinking is what defines reality.
Writing philosophy is challenging. Together, you may come to conclusions you wouldn't have thought of on your own. Summarization of the ideas captured and restatement of substantial considerations made in addition to the thesis.
However, this argument is faulty, for the following reasons Subjective Idealism - Subjective idealism research papers discuss the doctrine that holds that the material world has no significant existence or value aside from the given by the mind.about philosophical writing.
Philosophical writing is distinctive because of the character of bits of philosophical writing—the dialogues, papers, and books you will read in your classes—not because of how it is produced.
And while we all start out with a pretty good. This text collects all Austin’s published articles plus a new one, ch. 13, hitherto unpublished. The analysis of the ordinary language to clarify philosophical questions is the common element of the 13 papers.
Chapters 2 and 4 discuss the nature of knowledge, focusing on ‘performative utterances’. The doctrine of ‘speech acts’, i.e. a statement may be the pragmatic use of language. A philosophy paper consists of the reasoned defense of some claim Your paper must offer an argument.
It can't consist in the mere report of your opinions, nor in a mere report of the opinions of the philosophers we discuss. You have to defend the claims you make. The first Transactions was printed in and included papers on the Transit of Venus and the Gulf Stream.
Memoirs of the American Philosophical Society. The Memoirs, a second series of monographs, was first published in and includes books of various lengths in many scholarly disciplines. Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society.
Your paper should do some philosophical work A kind of complaint that is common in undergraduate philosophy papers goes like this: Philosopher X assumes A and argues from there to B. B seems unattractive to me. Philosopher X just assumes A and doesn't give any argument for it.
I don't think A is true. So I can just reject A and thereby avoid B. A good phi- losophy paper is not simply a statement of your own views. Also, a good philosophy paper is not solely a presentation of one side of an issue, even if in the end you wish to defend a particular view.
