Socrates View on God and Pious Thesis Statement Paper
a detailed outline for a 1500 words paper
1) your paper engages in an issue of rational controversy (i.e. you have an opponent that isn’t a straw man!)
2) your paper is attempting to answer a question that doesn’t demand only empirical investigation in order to resolve or make progress in resolving (i.e. you can make progress just sitting and reflecting)
3) you engage in a debate you care about and are invested in (i.e. you care about getting an answer to this controversy)
4) the controversy targeted by your paper is a debate you can make a productive contribution to (this might be hard to anticipate, but you need to aim for this)
include in the outline every point, idea, argument, and observation you would plan on including in the paper. This assignment, in short, is to do all the intellectual work behind the writing of the paper.
