FIRST PAPER PROMPT
PHIL 1000 PW2, Summer 2021—THIS PAPER IS DUE ON BLACKBOARD ON 6/30 BY 11:59 PM EST
This paper is based off of Plato Gorgias book and other PDF files I will attach as well.
The first paper will be based on a prompt I will provide and must be a minimum of 7 pages, double-spaced, Times New Roman 12-point font, with one-inch margins. I expect quotes and paraphrases from the material in the course, correctly cited, in any paper handed in to me. Any bibliographical or cover pages will not count toward that total and the seventh page must be 4/5ths full for it to be considered a complete page.
In our readings for class we have seen two perspectives—Plato’s and Aristotle’s—on rhetoric/oratory (remember, both terms translate ῥητορική). In this paper you will need to:
1. Give an account of one of these thinker’s positions concerning rhetoric, using textual evidence, you must quote and paraphrase with proper citation, to show that your recreation of the account is accurate.
2. Give a preliminary evaluation of the account with argumentation for why the position is right or wrong.
3. Provide some criticism of the position using the position of the other thinker, again with quotes or paraphrases properly cited, or a plausible account of their position.
4. Write a response to the criticism from the perspective of the first position you described and indicate if you hold that this response is able to answer the criticism.
Now, you need not ultimately develop the position that Plato and Aristotle are opposed in their views on ῥητορική, but whatever position you take, you will need to argue for that position. The paper is an argumentative paper; it cannot consist only in comparing and contrasting Aristotle and Plato—you must stake out a position using those two thinkers. This means you will come down on a side and what side you will take should be indicated in a thesis at the start of your paper. Please reach out to me if you are unsure in any way with what you want to do; offering guidance with these sorts of things is part of my job.
Do not forget that you will need to give a thesis at the start of your paper concerning your ultimate position, i.e. who you take to be correct and why, before you launch into the account-giving, and that what is in that thesis should direct what is relevant for the account that you give. Given the number of tasks in this prompt, the page minimum for the paper is 7 double-spaced pages, with 4/5ths of the last page needing to be full for it to count, and bibliographical or cover pages not counting.
