Paper 3: How Free is the will of the individual within Society?



Background: For this unit we have read Plato, George Orwell, Walter T. Stace, and Stanley Milgram. My hope is that after reading these pieces, you have a collection of perspectives to draw from (some you may agree with and some you may not) in order to begin theorizing about free will.



Your Task: Find a current event from the news a something that has happened in the last month. Read up on it: Look at every news article you can find to determine the facts; that is, what happened, who was involved, what were past events leading up to it, etc. You are going to be a detective, of sorts. Then, from the news story, choose a main a?character,a? so to speak a the person who was robbed, the thief, the guy who caught it all on camera, whoever youad like to focus on for the purposes of this assignment a and decide to what extent that person acted out of free will. Your thesis will be a statement that tells your reader your decision about how a?freelya? this person acted.



Requirements (or Hereas What I Would Do If I Were You):



1) In your introductory paragraphs, briefly summarize the case you have found and the clear facts of the case. Then, write a thesis that answers this question: To what extent did the person you are choosing to focus on for this paper act out of free will? Did some of his or her actions depend largely on previous events or were the actions taken from a place of total freedom of choice?



2) In your body paragraphs, cite newspaper articles that support your argument and include analysis of how the quotations you provide help prove your thesis.



3) Also, in your body paragraphs, refer to the texts from our unit to help you define a?free willa? or a?determinisma? or other key terms.



4) Before you conclude, be sure to consider what someone who disagrees with you might say and how you would respond; this usually only needs a paragraph or two.



5) A solid and impactful conclusion that answers the question, a?Why does this matter to my reader?a?



6) MLA format for a Research Paper (see the sample student essay in our text on pages 313-325).
