Important reminders for your essay:
– Think of your reader as someone who needs your help. Your essay will
serve as a tutorial:
– Organize your thoughts so they are expressed on paper as a
coherent whole. Given the constraints of the exam format, you’ll
probably write a minimum of four, and a maximum of six
paragraphs. These should ‘hang together’ in a way that’s easy to
follow; there is a clear progression of ideas.
– Write intelligibly: sentences must be grammatical and cohesive.
– Choose your words carefully. Remember, you’re constructing ideas for your reader.
– Orient your essay around a single point you want to make, using your thinker(s) as evidence.
– Do not quote the text. I want to read you, not the thinker in question. Reference
any textual evidence you use in your essay in your own words, e.g., ‘Socrates
says that he doesn’t know anything…,’ rather than, “I know that I have no
wisdom, small or great.”
Does Socrates care about anyone?
Does Plato’s theory of recollection provide a metaphysical framework for
Socrates’s ‘What is X?’ question?
What’s love got to do with it? Explain Plato’s epistemology and
metaphysics in terms of love.
answer all 3 as 1 question.
all that is required for the essay goes for each question. So answer each question separately. meaning each question should have min. 4-6 paragraphs
