Project #3844 - Epistemology - I Think, Therefore…

insight paper should be 1000-1250 words in length and are due at the beginning of the last class meeting. Late insight essays will not be accepted. Essays will be submitted online for Plagiarism cheak

 

The following remarks concerning the content of the essays may be helpful to you:

            An insight is an idea, and, as such, it can (and should) be articulated in a sentence. "My insight is that . . . " It is not a feeling. It is not a state of being, like having an open mind. It is not a directive, such as "always question everything." Your insight journal is intended to provide you with the raw material for generating this paper

            Essays must focus on a single insight. Also, you should not spend time explaining how your insight was formed over time. Simply state your insight in an introductory paragraph--you should be able to fit your insight on a 3 x 5 notecard--and then get to the business of explaining why it is important and appropriate. Be sure to state your insight in clear terms.

 

            Insights are somewhat personal; what is insightful to one person may be patently obvious to another, or another might be oblivious as to why the insight is insightful. Thus, I am not concerned so much with what your insight is as I am with how well you are able to articulate it, explain its relevance to this course and explain why it matters.

 

            While this paper is about an insight you had, it is essential that you focus on the concepts under consideration, not yourself.  These essays should not be autobiographies. Do not write about what kind of person you always were and why you are different now. Insights deal with how we understand the world and ourselves. I am looking for thoughtful engagement with big ideas, not an inventory of your feelings or your life story.

 

 

     Essays will be graded according to how well they demonstrate 1) an understanding of a key question and/or issue in this class, 2) your critical analysis of it, 3) demonstration of an awareness of your own beliefs concerning your topic, and 4) the degree of complexity with which your paper treats your topic.

 

Other grading considerations include:

 

Clarity and Argument – Is the paper generally clear and the prose readable? Is the thesis and argument explicit? Is the paper well-reasoned on the basis of sound and cogent argument? Is evidence interpreted adequately?

Grammar and Spelling – Is language used according to the rules of grammar? Is it properly academic? (Students should keep in mind that poor grammar and spelling can obscure the clarity and argument of a paper; thus, a poor evaluation here may affect the above.)

Focus and Organization – Does the paper stick to its topic, addressing necessary details while avoiding extraneous ones? Is the paper well-organized with respect to the order and presentation of ideas? Are ideas properly subordinated throughout the paper?

Factuality and Documentation – Are the factual assertions advanced in the paper true? Are they adequately supported by documentation as needed?
