How To Write a Philosophy Paper:

Your thesis statement should reflect the position you are taking. This is an attempt to persuade. It is a persuasive essay.
You need to provide reasons to support your thesis
You need to consider opposing views (why might someone disagree with you) and refute them.
You can write more than five paragraphs (do not be bound by the ‘5 paragraph essay’)
Tie your points back to your thesis.

In General, you essay should have this format:

Introduction and thesis
Discussion of the philosopher
Defense of your position
Considering an opposing view
Refutation of that view
Points 2, 3, 4 and 5 can come in any order that makes the most sense to you. But they must all be present.

Cite Properly. Cite More Than You Think You Need To:

When you Quote:

“Philosophy, at least according to the origin of the word in classical Greek, is the ‘love of wisdom’–philosophers are lovers of wisdom.” (Bailey, 1)

When you Paraphrase:

Descartes hypothesized the existence of the evil demon in order to guard against slipping back into habits of belief. (Descartes, 28)

And when you summarize

Then, at the end of your document, list:

Works Cited:

Bailey, Andrew First Philosophy: Fundamental Problems and Readings in Philosophy Volume 2, Andrew Bailey and Robert M. Martin (eds). Ontario: Broadview Press. 2011.
