Argumentative Essay (15% of overall grade)
“An effective argument makes a well-supported, well-considered point about an issue in an attempt to convince or persuade readers. Convincing involves gaining readers’ agreement that a position on an issue is reasonable and well founded. Persuading involves getting them to take action.” (Palmquist 397)
For this assignment, you will choose a topic based on the 19th century philosopher, William Kingdon Clifford, and “The Ethics of Belief.” Uribe points out that Clifford’s philosophy is perhaps more relevant than ever in our “interconnected, AI-driven, digital age.” The topics that you can choose are wide and varied. I only ask that it somehow fit into Clifford’s philosophy.
A successful argument requires that you
1. Take an explicit position. While the use of qualifying words such as “many,” “some,” or “maybe” is acceptable, an explicit position is often easier to argue and will not confuse your reader.
2. Respond to what others have said or done. This is your counterargument.
3. Provide your reader with the appropriate background information.
4. Give a clear indication of why this topic matters.
5. As always, provide good reasons and evidence.
