social media in philosophy

(2) Present a detailed explanation of that situation/event using the conceptsintroduced in one of the readings we discussed this semester. You can choose anyreading we discussed.(3) Present an objection to your explanation: how could somebody holding adifferent position interpret the situation/event you have presented and how couldthey answer to your own explanation of that situation/event?(4) Respond to that objection from the point of view you have chosen to defend.Example: I have recently read on the New York Times that a big cryptocurrency companywent bankrupt and millions of dollars disappeared into nothing in a few days if notminutes. Suppose that I choose to focus on that situation, and I decide to explain it usingthe conceptual framework of Descartes’ First Meditation. (1) So I start my paper bygiving a brief but clear and comprehensive account of that situation as I read it on theNew York Times. (2) Then I explain that scenario using Descartes’ First Meditation, forexample by raising the question of the metaphysical status of cryptocurrency: is it real?Is it something of whose existence we can doubt? Is it something that has a physicalconsistency? Following the lead of Descartes’ First Meditation, I argue thatcryptocurrency is not real in the sense that it is nothing outside our own minds. (3) I thenpresent an objection to my Cartesian interpretation of cryptocurrency, for examplesupposing that someone might argue that cryptocurrency is both real and physicalbecause (a) it depends on some physical machinery carrying out algorithms and (b) it hassome very real consequences on economics and on the lives of people (especially thosewho invested on it). (4) I respond to that objection arguing that many things that existonly in our mind (for example, dreams, imaginary characters, moral ideals) have a realinfluence on our lives, but that this doesn’t make them any more real, in the sense thatthey still have existence only in our minds.Please note that this is only an example (and probably not a very good one), and it isgiven to illustrate how you should proceed. You should choose a situation or eventdifferent from the one I have given in my example, and you should analyze it from aperspective different from the one I have indicated in the example.InstructionsThe paper should address the four points I have indicated, but it should be structuredas one paper and not as four separate answers to four questions.After you have finished outlining your paper, you should write a short openingsentence in which you state what you are going to argue for in the paper and announce itsoutline (we will discuss some examples in class).When writing and reviewing your paper, ask yourself the following questions:Philosophy of Human Nature, Fall 2022(a) Is the thesis you intend to defend clear?(b) Is the structure of the paper clear? How can it be improved?(c) Is the concrete situation or event well suited to be explained from the point ofview that you decided to defend?(d) Is the objection clearly expressed?(e) Is the response to the objection clearly expressed?(f) Is the paper written in a grammatically correct form?(g) If you are using technical concepts, are you sure that you have explained them inclear terms?
