Philosophy In The World Assignment
Read two articles from the news and opinion world. Use the publications
list I’ve put on Blackboard. Don’t choose your two articles from the same
For each article, write a one paragraph summary of the article. You will
have two summaries total (2 articles = 2 summaries). Your summaries
should be in your own words.
For each article, try to uncover a philosophical question or issue buried
underneath. The article might not put things philosophically, but your job is
to discern the philosophical issue that is hovering below the surface.
You can either write or type this assignment. But the important thing is to
have it with you ready to turn in on Thursday when we meet for class.
No need to give me a copy of the article. Just bring your summaries.
Right above each summary, you should have the name of the publication
The New York Times
), the name of the article (e.g. “The President
Speaks to Congress”), and the date of the article (e.g. July 25, 2018). Do
this for both of your summaries.
