Take Home Final Exam Philosophy 220 Spring 2015 Write these answers by yourselves. Feel free to consult your texts, notes, and any other references that you’d like. You may also discuss these questions with your instructor and classmates. However, once you sit down to write your answers, you must work alone, just you, your texts and notes. Because it is a take-home exam, I expect your answers to be thoroughly grounded in the original texts. That is, please include relevant quotes and citations to support your answer . Any quoting or paraphrasing of sources should also be cited appropriately. However, do not make the mistake of over quoting and always unpack them in your own voice. The exams must be turned in by Friday, May 1 by 12:00 p.m. Exams turned in after 12:00 p.m. will be considered one day late. A.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
