General Tips for Writing Philosophically
Clarity and straightforwardness of thought and language are essential: avoid flowery styles and lengthy, superfluous introductions and conclusions. (Please do not start with a sentence like: “Since the beginning of time, humans have been having sex.)
To explain something, do not merely summarize what an author or lecturer has said. Instead, explain and illuminate the relevant ideas or arguments in your own words, as if you were trying to help a fellow student gain a deeper understanding of them.
Avoid excessive quotations! Stringing together quotes is not explaining a position or an argument and does not display your understanding of the material. Even paraphrasing in your own words is not enough. Again, explanation involves clarifying the claims, bringing out hidden assumptions behind arguments, noticing ambiguities as they arise and nailing them down, and so on.
Make sure you proofread your work. I am not grading for grammar. However, multiple grammatical or structural mistakes that detract from the clarity of your writing will result in a lower grade.
