At the end of week 4 you will turn in (1) a clearly
articulated thesis statement, and (2) a selected list of
appropriate sources using our
Library Guide for PHIL101 and our Online
Library, as indicated
below: 1. Identify at least
one encyclopedia, or similar work, providing a big picture overview
of key issues your topic needs to address.
2. Identify at least one secondary source, an interpretive work, addressing your topic which was written by someone other than the philosophers identified in your topic. This secondary source should be located through the journal article database available in the APUS Online Library, where contemporary philosophical articles pertaining to your topic, can be located. For instance, use EBSCO’s Academic Search Elite. This is a searchable database of scholarly articles from many academic disciplines, including philosophy. It should be used to locate contemporary scholarly articles pertaining to epistemology, perception, Locke, etc. It also contains the full text of many of the articles.
3. Identify at least one primary source, from a major philosopher identified in your topic choice. Be sure that the primary source selected pertains to the issues raised by your topic.
Provide a complete reference in MLA style for each work selected, and explain briefly (annotate) how the content of each source will assist you with your Philosophical Essay Assignment.. Attach as a correctly formatted MS Word document and submit. See the syllabus for additional instructions and an example of what is due week 4.
