Hello this paper is from Plato: The Allegory
and the Cave. The writing point is as followed.
In what ways would depending on the material world for one's highest moral values affect ethical behavior? What is the connection between ethics and materialism? Write a brief essay that defends or attacks materialism as a basis for ethical action. How can people aspire to the good if they root their greatest pleasures in the senses? What alternatives do modern people have if they choose to base their actions on non materialistic, or spiritual, values? What are those values? How can they guide our ethical behavior? Do you think they should?
That is the the writing point. This is for Eng 112 I don't know if u guys do rough drafts as well?
1. All papers will be typed (computer-printed), double-spaced, with approximate 1 1/2” margins (top, bottom, sides) to allow for professor’s comments.
2. Use no cover sheets, folders, title pages, etc. For essays 1 thru 4, place the following on the first page of the essay:
(a) Top left corner of beginning page, double-spaced: your name, course number/section, date, essay number (E-1, E-2, E-3, etc.).
(b) Center of beginning page: Title & name of essayist/writer about which you are writing, for ex., “Ends vs. Means” (Machiavelli).
(c) Three or four lines beneath your title..............Begin introduction of essay.
3. Include proper MLA documentation in all essays. Every essay will contain at least three (3) parenthetical, in-text citations of quoted/borrowed material from the text-essay and/or from outside research sources.
4. All papers will have a properly formatted Works Cited Page as the last page of the paper, unless the only source used is the single reading from the textbook, in which case a proper works cited entry at the bottom of the final page of your essay will suffice, provided enough space (6 or more lines) exists there.
