Faults and Fallacies in the Philosophy Paper

Mon Oct 10, 2011 5:30PM - 6:30PM • Room 213, DeBartolo Hall

Writing the philosophy paper is a unique skill that many of us struggle to master. It is deep. It is complex. It challenges its writer to balance elaboration with concision (and avoid contradiction) while evaluating issues of validity, soundness, and truth. Whether you’re a philosophy novice or a philosophy major, this is a formidable task. But you don’t have to settle for error. Come to Monday’s workshop to learn how to avoid the most common faults and fallacies so that you can navigate the philosophy paper with confidence.
