From: Michael Sudduth <msudduth@comcast.net> Date: September 23, 2008 3:31:52 PM PDT To: Michael Sudduth <msudduth@comcast.net> Subject: Paper Topic #1 Introduction to Philosophy Class, This is a reminder that the tentative due date for your mid-term paper is Monday, October 20. Remember, for your mid-term paper you will select from topics/questions that I suggest. The first paper topic option is the following: Topic #1: Provide a Platonist interpretation of the film American Beauty. This topic is a fairly broad one. You could, for example, write on the reality vs. appearance of beauty in American Beauty. Alternatively, you might focus on one of the characters in the film and develop an account of the person's journey from ignorance towards enlightenment or their inability to experience intellectual liberation in their lives. I will post at least two more paper topics. Remember you may turn in a completed paper anytime before its due date. The sooner, the better, especially if you anticipate a heavy homework schedule in the second half of October. By the end of the week I will post guidelines for your mid-term paper. It is absolutely essential that you read these guidelines and follow them for your paper. Another paper topic will be posted next week. Professor Sudduth From: Michael Sudduth <msudduth@comcast.net>

Also, take note of the following technical requirements for the paper. (1) Paper length: Paper must be 4 to 5 pages *of text* in length.
