Perry's Dialogue raises a number of philosophical issues, including identity, memory, consciousness, the self, the soul, death, immortality, and John Locke. Research one of these issues by finding and reviewing six articles on the topic to compile an annotated bibliography. To create the bibliography, document the source in proper MLA format and write a concise paragraph, about 150 words, that summarizes the article. Take one or two entries from reference works, take at least one article from an electronic source, and take at least two articles from print sources.
A successful bibliography will use correct
MLA format, demonstrate effective research skills, and
Write a one thousand word essay on the issue related to Perry's Dialogue you researched for feeder one. Your essay should present an argument and should support your position with evidence from at least three outside sources. These sources can be, but do not have to be, articles or entries from your annotated bibliography.
A successful essay will argue clearly and effectively, document sources correctly, and demonstrate appropriate style.
