Week One: Weekly Russell Round Up/Critical Reflection
After completing this week’s assigned chapters of Russell’s The Problems of Philosophy as well as the other required readings, do the following:
First, briefly summarize what you learned from reading the Russell chapters this week. Then, set about achieving your main goal in this assignment, beyond the summary, which is to tie together any theories, themes, concepts, important ideas, arguments, important observations, etc. you discover in Russell’s work and the particular philosophical views and the general content covered in the other readings.
For example, in Week One, you will be summarizing Chapters I-IV in The Problems of Philosophy, and then consider how what Russell says links up with, adds to, or even conflicts with the philosophical views and ideas of Plato and Descartes. There will be plenty of material that will invite comparison and analysis.More Essay Samples: Demystifying Women in Things Fall Apart »Case Arguments for a Psychiatric case
