Your essay should be written in a dialectic style that will provide arguments for and against the statement and concludes with a synthesis in which you provide your own opinion and justified evaluation. As a result your analysis should have three parts:
A) Thesis: drawing on the concepts and materials we discussed in this course provide an informed argument FOR the statement.
B) Antithesis: drawing on the concepts and materials we discussed in this course provide an informed argument AGAINST the statement .
C) Synthesis: provide your own, informed and justified assessment of the topic. Regardless of whether you 1) take a position for or against, 2) demonstrate how to change the discussion in a way that sheds new light on the argument, or 3) provide a balanced appraisal of both sides, you need to argue and justify your line of reasoning.
