Philosophy Research Presentation (PHIL*4820)
Code and section: PHIL*4820*01
Term: Fall 2019
Instructor: Peter Eardley
The focus of this course is on mastering the oral presentation of a philosophical argument, as well as engaging in respectful, intellectually honest discussion with one’s audience. Over the course of the semester students will develop and present a philosophical argument, working independently, in class and one-on-one with the instructor. By the end of the semester students will be ready to present their work at an end-of-semester conference. Students are expected to have a topic for their presentation at the beginning of the course. It is also expected that once one has their topic, they will refine their presentations throughout the term, right up until their final presentations.
