two philosophical exegeses

Exegesis’s Include:

You don’t need an introduction or a conclusion but your first sentence should be a stand-alone paragraph which states your thesis. Your thesis should say something like “I will argue that Peikoff has a better solution to the case at hand because ….” (This comes generally from the 4th task.) The because part is crucial — that’s the argumentative component of your thesis.

  1. Explain the case at hand back in your own words.
    1. This should be no more than one paragraph. It’s just a quick summary so I know how you’re understanding the case.
  2. Explain the theories of the two philosophers that are assigned in that particular week.
    1. This should be where you show that you understand the arguments of the philosophers that are covered in a particular topic. So if you’re writing on the Healthcare Case Analysis, you’d explain the arguments of Peikoff and Bradley.
    2. This should be completely neutral — just a succinct presentation of the arguments that isn’t influenced by or that mentions the case.
    3. This should be at least two paragraphs, and probably more like four.
  3. Present an argument applying the philosophers’s arguments to the case at hand.
    1. Here you should take the work you did in task two and apply that to the story. So if you were writing on Healthcare, you might say that Peikoff’s theory would put Jim in world X because of reason Y and then justify that. You’d then do the same with Bradley.
    2. This should be at least two paragraphs, and could easily be four.
  4. Present an argument explaining why one philosopher has a better solution to the case at hand.
    1. Do to this you need to explain what you think a successful solution to the case would demonstrate and then show how one of the philosophers does this better than the other.
    2. This should be one to two paragraphs.
  5. Explain what you would do and why.
    1. This should be exactly one paragraph.
