PHIL1100 EXAM QUESTIONS Information about your Final Exam It can take a while for the university to set the date for the final exam, so be sure to arrange to be in town for the entire exam period (December 5-20) at least until the definite exam dates are set. In a class of this size I cannot make special arrangements for you just because the date that the University has chosen for the exam isn’t convenient for you. Format: For the final exam, you will be expected to write 10 short essays, choosing 10 questions from a list of 12 provided at the start of the exam. These twelve questions will themselves be taken from a list to be found on the following three pages. Your answers should be about 300 words each, and each essay will be worth 10% of your exam grade. (Please note that if you answer all 12 questions, you will simply be graded on the first ten questions that you answer, not on the best ten.) Since the exam is not open book, you will not be expected to include quotations or page references with your essays. Further, you will not need introductory or concluding paragraphs. Still, you should have grammatical sentences logically put together into coherent paragraphs. Point form answers are not acceptable. Since you have these questions in advance, you should be able to answer any of them clearly and concisely . It is crucial for these essays to be on topic , you are more likely to hurt your grade by including material that doesn’t directly relate to the assigned question than you by having an answer that is a little on the short side. Please Note: Because of problems we have had with past exams: (1) Students are not allowed to use iPods, or any other sort of music player, during the exam. (2) All phones need to be put away at all times (so if you typically use your phone to tell the time, be sure to bring an alternate timepiece for the exam itself). Final Exam: Essay Questions
Twelve of the following questions will appear on your final exam, and you will be expected to answer ten of them. Your answers should be about 300 words each. 1. Explain what reasons Socrates gives in the Crito for not fleeing Athens, even though staying means certain death. Explain why you do, or don’t, find these arguments sound.
