State the ethical problem at hand, and explain why it matters.

2. Summarize your primary article

Do not go into great detail, just give the gist.

3. Give a detailed reconstruction of the author’s argument

Be sure to explain the inferences being made, and do not simply give a book report of the premises and conclusions. What is the author’s primary conclusion? Parse your reconstruction into the CREW structure (see lecture slides on Writing). State your interpretation of the author’s claims and explain in detail how the author defends their position.

4. Pose two objections to the argument

Put pressure on the author’s argument to test its strength. First state the strongest objection. Explain why this objection speaks against the author’s argument, and also explain why this is the strongest objection. Then state a second objection. Again, explain why this objection is evidence against the author’s position, and evaluate the strength of the objection.

5. Evaluate the issue: state and defend your position

In #3 and #4 you gave a detailed philosophical analysis. Now it’s time to evaluate the results. Does the author’s original argument stand firm against the objections? If so, state how the author’s theory can reply to the objections. Do the objections sway you to the other side? Then explain why the author’s theory cannot withstand the pressure of the objections you’ve stated. Perhaps the objections suggest a modified version of the author’s argument that can withstand the objection. In that case, explain what modifications you would make, and tell your reader in detail how these modifications make the argument immune to the original objection.

6. Compose an introduction, transitions, and conclusion.

Your introduction should include a clear statement of your thesis and a “roadmap” of your paper. Your transitions should make obvious the structure of your paper. This will be discussed in class.
