Paper Writing Strategies for Introductory Philosophy Courses

Paper Writing Strategies for Introductory Philosophy Courses

Site gives tips on writing papers in philosophy. From the author: "You are invited to follow a series of links to pages that trace the stages of writing a philosophy paper. The paper is on Berkeley's Three Dialogues Between Hylas and Philonous, but the lessons contained in the drafts apply to all the assignments in the class. (See the syllabus for the full specification of the assignments along with due dates.) Each draft builds on the last. The final version is a paper that would receive an excellent evaluation."

suspect only graduate students could use it. My freshmen community college
students would not undertand the vocabulary in the essays.
