Assignment 3: Logical Fallacies and the News For Week 1,

This answer was rated:

Assignment 3: Logical Fallacies and the News

For Week 1, address the following in a three-page paper:

Identify a current event or contemporary social issue that you are interested in analyzing using the critical thinking method. Your issue must be broad enough to sustain deep philosophical analysis and must have relevance to your community. This means that the issue should be one (1) about which reasonable minds can disagree, (2) that concretely affects people’s lives and (3)that requires a solution. Issues that only affect a few people or have only a minor impact are probably too narrow. Issues that you are not open to examining with an open mind will also not work well for this assignment. For some topic suggestions, you might want to browse some recent episodes of PBS’s Frontline series or the website of a reputable news organization.
Identify at least two news articles on your topic located using the South University Online Library and/or reputable news outlets. Make sure that the articles you choose present at least two different perspectives on the issue or event you choose and include information that you can use to develop your arguments and analysis. If you cannot locate two news articles on your topic, or if all of the articles share the same perspective, you should choose another topic. You should cite the two articles using correct APA citation.
Analyze the issue using the critical-thinking method. Identify and explain any logical fallacies that might be involved in any of the relevant arguments.

Assignment 1: Philosophy and Media

By Saturday, May 11, 2013, respond to the assigned discussion questions and submit your responses to the appropriate topic in this Discussion Area. You should quote or paraphrase from specific pages in the course text to support your claims about philosophical ideas and concepts, using correct APA citation. Start reviewing and responding to your classmates and the facilitator as early in the week as possible.

Address the following in a three-page paper:

  • Identify a film, book, television show, or other form of media/art that involves characters/narrators reflecting upon the nature of identity and the self. Cite the media using correct APA citation.
  • Explain at least one theory of identity from this week’s readings. For example, you might discuss rationalism, empiricism, or phenomenology. Cite support from the primary text selections in the chapter as well as authoritative secondary sources such as the course text and online lectures.
  • Analyze the film using at least one of the theories of identity or freedom from this week’s readings and lectures.
  • You may want to consider the following questions while choosing a relevant theory and analyzing the media:
  • Do the characters doubt their own existence or their ability to know themselves and the world around them?
  • Do the characters/narrator reflect upon whether they exist and how they know what they know?
  • To what extent do the following factors impact their sense of self: emotions, past experiences, rationality, other people, race, gender, socio-economic status, ethnicity, and religion?
  • Are they conscious of themselves as having a “self?”

Submit your assignment to the Discussion Area by Saturday, May 11, 2013.
