The Philosophy of Time

First essay guidelines

Write an essay between 2000-2500 words on any subject covered in the seminar so far. If you've read ahead, you can also choose a topic we've not yet covered. If you wish to choose a topic not covered in the seminar but which is obviously relevant, please send me a rough outline first which we can discuss and decide on from there.

The essay should engage in at least one of our readings. It must also consist of some original work. If you have any questions about how to write your essay, please get in touch with me. I am happy to look at a final draft and initial outlines.

You will be assessed on the following criteria (in no particular order):

The essay is worth 25% of your total grade and is due on the week of 22-28 May (on any day in that range). You may submit a hard copy or by email. If you think you might need some additional time, please let me know at least a few days in advance.
