PHIL 1301 Critical Analysis Paper- 3 theories of life’s meaning- theism, nihilism, and subjectivism

At the end of the semester, students are expected to submit a four page, double-spaced Critical Analysis Paper (CAP) and outline. The length requirement does not include the title, outline, or work cited pages. Instructions, paper topic, and grading criteria for the CAP are in a separate folder. The paper score will not be dropped. CAP topic: Discuss and evaluate the three theories of life’s meaning: theism, nihilism, and subjectivism. Which theory do you find to be the most persuasive and why? CAP Instructions: Writing Tips: Think of the CAP as a well-researched persuasive/argumentative paper. Imagine that you are trying to persuade an intelligent, but uninformed reader of your conclusion, which is encapsulated in your thesis statement. The last sentence of your introductory paragraph should be your thesis statement. A common problem that I see is that the thesis statement is way too broad. Be sure to narrow it down sufficiently to write a well-written paper in 4-6 pages. • The paper should consist of the reasoned defense of some claim, which is stated in your thesis statement. • A good paper is modest and makes a small point; but it makes that point clearly and straightforwardly, and it offers good reasons in support of it. • Make the structure of your paper obvious. Include a short outline of the main points of your paper. • Be concise, but explain yourself fully. Some Possible Writing Strategies The paper has to do substantive work, not merely regurgitate an author’s main points (although, of course, it is important for you to restate an author’s position before criticizing it). Some possibilities are: Criticize an argument; or show that certain arguments for the thesis are no good. Defend the argument or thesis against someone else's criticism. Offer reasons to believe the thesis. Offer counterexamples to the thesis. Requirements of the Paper You must cite at least two academic sources (such as journal articles, books, websites, etc.). Make sure those sources are academically reputable. Since web addresses change constantly, you can find the website by googling its name. Be careful of satire websites or fake news. Some good websites include the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Philosopher’s Imprint, and the numerous electronic databases that the school library carries. Possible outside sources include books, journal articles, magazines, databases, Websites, videos, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and almanacs. When possible, try to cite from recent sources. Make sure you evaluate your online sources for trustworthiness and credibility. Papers should either be in Microsoft Word format (.doc). Upload to Canvas by the due date towards the end of the semester. Four-to-six pages, double-spaced, Times New Roman font, 12-point, one-inch margins. MLA or Chicago system of citation. Include a cover page that contains the title of the paper, your name, my name, the date, and the class (e.g., PHIL 1301.710 or MW 10:10 AM). Include a short outline of the main points of your paper and include it after the title page. You are allowed to write in the first person. Also, include page numbers on the chicago format

Merits and demerits of qualitative and quantitative methods psychology essay
Research methods are "strategy(s) for gathering data" (Harding, 1986) and tend to be dichotomized into being either quantitative or qualitative. It has been argued that technique has been gendered (Oakley, 1998), with quantitative methods traditionally being associated with words such as positivism, medical, objectivity, information and masculinity. In contrast, qualitative methods have generally been associated with interpretive, non-scientific, subjectivity and femininity.
