Project #46762 - wirting a critical analysis of an argument

 

  1. Write a critical analysis of the argument.  In an extended argument, the author may

     

 

  1. Argue for more than one conclusion. If so, you will need to distinguish them.

     

  2. Provide more than one argument for the same conclusion. If so, you will need to keep them separate.

     

  3. Cite arguments given by others, respond to objections, provide contextual/background information. These things should not be mixed with the author’s primary argument.

     

 

  1. Divide your essay into two parts:

     

 

  1. Give an account of the author’s argument: what is the main conclusion? What are the premises for this conclusion? What are the sub-arguments, if any?  You have the option of reconstructing the argument in standard argument form (i.e., with numbered premises and conclusion) or summarizing the argument in normal prose. (This part constitutes 25% of total marks)

     

  2. Evaluate the author’s argument as you have represented it. Are there any false or questionable premises? If so, which ones and why? Are there any invalid or weak inferences? You must explain and justify all your claims. (This part constitutes 70% of total marks)

     

  3. Summarize the verdict of part (2) and your reasons for your verdict in a short paragraph (This part constitutes 5% of total marks).
