Phil 104B S18: Extra Credit

Extra Credit (Due before the end of the semester): While we have covered many significant and important philosophical figures this semester, we have, by necessity, ignored or skipped over many of them. Your extra credit assignment is to pick one of those figures and write a 2-3 page report. In your report you should provide a brief summary of that figure's life, and then try to briefly summarize the core philosophical doctrines of that figure. Finally, you should discuss why that figure is significant to the history of philosophy. Your papers should be typed, double-spaced in a 10-12 point legible font. You may submit them over email or as hard copies in class. You should also include a works cited page. Each paper will be worth 10 quiz points, and you may submit a maximum of two. The textbook is a very good guide to selecting authors as are the following resources:
