PHL 206 - Writing Practicum in Philosophy (2 Cr.)


Often when we practice philosophical writing, we discover that our words, language, and prose are more competent and creative than we thought ourselves to be. The Practicum on writing in philosophy offers the beautiful opportunity for students to explore many different approaches to philosophical writing. These include exegesis (summary and explication of a philosophical text), analysis, argument, application of a text to an event, situation, or phenomenon, evaluation/critique of a philosophical position, synthesis, reflective essays, and contributions to philosophy. Our practicum will also work on composing and drafting, revising and editing, and proof reading. The beauty of writing philosophy is also that these processes of philosophical writing can change the way you frame your world and deepen your experience of being human.
