Phil 3301: Moral Philosophy Review: Mid-Term Exam February 19, 2016 Background: You answers must be clear, precise and grammatically correct. Essays must be well-written essays. That includes using complete, grammatically correct sentences, providing a well-organized essay, having well-constructed paragraphs with topic sentences, having arguments (when appropriate), providing clear, succinct definitions or explanations, and so on. You may use quotes when appropriate as evidence or as illustration, or to provide the context and so on, but typically, these are not necessary. Be clear, precise, complete but concise. Say whatever must be said to answer the question completely, but no more than that. Don’t be too wordy. Pay attention to choice of words. Remember that a “why or why not?” is a request for reasons or for an explanation. Be sure that you answer the question I asked, and not one in the neighborhood of what was asked. In choosing questions, don’t repeat material. For example, if you choose Nietzsche to illustrate the definitions in I.1, then you will not be able to choose II.6. You may bring a “crib sheet” to class or use your notes or notebook. You will take the exam in the “blue book” that we will provide.
