Metaphysics PHIL 531
Lecturer: Sandy Berkovski
- Select the topic of your presentation from among the topics covered on the syllabus.
- Inform the lecturer of your choice by email by 8 October 2018.
- If the topic has already been selected by another graduate student, you will have to select again.
- Prepare your presentation based on the materials in the course reader.
- While your presentation will be on a general subject (e.g., the reality of change), you may want to sharpen it to address a specific issue within that subject which is covered in the readings (e.g., how adequate is McTaggart's argument for the unreality of time, and how adequate is Broad's critique of it?).
- That being said, your presentation should include at least a brief review of the texts under discussion.
- You may use additional secondary literature; however, your presentation should not rely on any prior knowledge of that literature.
- Your presentation will be judged by its clarity (first and foremost), accuracy, depth.
- Your presentation tools must include a handout. No computer slides.
- To facilitate comprehension, you may want to make use of diagrams, schemas, images.
- To illustrate your claims, use examples. Use many examples.
