Submission Guidelines
1 inch margins, double-spaced 12-point Times New Roman font (Be sure to check these formatting guidelines as these may not be the default setting on your word processor).
Pa.per must be at least one full page, but the goal is to demonstrate thorough engagement with the text. Hence, it is important that you paraphrase, quote, and cite appropriately to make clear how you are reading and interpreting the text.
Feel free to use grids and tables if you find that structure to be helpful, but you are not required to. You must at least make clear which main claims go with which supporting statements and responses.
Upload your pa.per in Word or PDF format (doc, docx, pdf). Other formats (e.g. Pages) will not be accepted.
Your pa.per will be run through the plagiarism detection program. I take academic integrity very seriously as a matter of fairness to all PCC students, and though in many cases, students unknowingly violate the academic integrity policy, you will still be held responsible for making sure your work complies with those policies. If you have any questions, I am more than happy to help.

This week, I want you to think about what you expect to get out of  this class. After doing the readings, imagine that a friend or family  member has asked you why you are taking a philosophy class. They may be  wondering what philosophy is, what it is good for, or why you would want  to learn about it. In this discussion board, answer them by explaining  what you’ve read from our first two readings. 
Since you need to  post two responses each week, make one of your posts play the devil’s  advocate. Now YOU can be the inquisitive friend or family member who  isn’t yet convinced that philosophy is worthwhile. Challenge one of your  classmates to answer/defend the importance of philosophy. 
Finally, what do you really think? Is philosophy worthwhile? Why or why not? (I promise I won’t mark you down for being honest! 😉

______________________________________Answer premises with book reading (200 words) 
*Due Tuesday, August 30th @10am!*
–Of the various definitions of rhetoric offered in the chapter, which resonated for you the most? (Note—if a definition resonated with you, it need not necessarily be because you liked that definition)
–Within Western rhetorical theory, probably the most often cited definition of rhetoric is from Aristotle: “the ability, in each particular case, to see the available means of persuasion.” Based on what you read in this chapter or elsewhere, what do you think is effective about this definition, and what are its limitations?
–Do you think rhetorical criticism should focus more on the intent of the rhetor in engaging an audience, or the outcome of the rhetor’s efforts on the audience?

Week 7 Assignment – Case Study: Environmental Ethics
Introduction
Read the following case study and respond to the question below.
In April 2010, the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded, killing 11 workers and spewing four million barrels of light crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico. It was the largest oil spill in U.S. history and ranked among the top 10 world’s worst human-caused environmental disasters. Approximately 47,000 square miles, or one-fifth of the total area of the Gulf, was affected, as well as beaches and coastal marshes. Before it was finally contained three months later, the spill killed hundreds of sea turtles, sea birds, and marine mammals, in addition to countless fish. BP worked with the U.S. Coast Guard and other government agencies to contain the damage. BP ended active clean-up operation in November 2011 and is now focusing on restoring areas damaged by the spill. 
Effects of the spill on the ecosphere and animal life will not be known for years, although recovery has been faster than expected. Hundreds of people, including fishers, shrimpers, and workers in the tourism industry, were out of work as a result of the spill. BP set up a $20 billion fund to compensate victims of the spill. Disputes overcompensation are still ongoing (1).
The explosion causing the spill occurred on April 20, 2010. On April 30, the U.S. Justice Department banned new drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. U.S. President Barack Obama used the authority granted to the president by the 1953 Outer Continental Shelf Land Act, to withdraw all the Chukchi Sea and the majority of the Beaufort Sea in the Arctic from future oil and gas drilling. (2) 
The Trump administration has opened up the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arctic U.S. coastal areas to oil and gas drilling. Environmentalists argue that it would be difficult or almost impossible to contain an oil spill in the Arctic because of the area’s remoteness, the ice cover, and the lack of daylight during the winter months.   
Question: Should we be drilling for oil in the Arctic offshore?

Week 6 Assignment – Case Study: Health Care Ethics
Introduction
Read the following case study and respond to the question below.
26-year-old jet pilot and sometime rodeo performer Donald Cowart was standing in a field with his father when there was a violent explosion caused by leaking gas. The explosion killed his father and sent Donald, whose body was engulfed in flames, running for half a mile. When a farmer found him, Cowart, who was in excruciating pain from burns covering more than 65 percent of his body, asked for a gun so he could kill himself. The farmer refused his request and called an ambulance. Cowart asked the paramedics not to drive him to the hospital but to leave him in the field to die. They instead administered life-saving measures and took him to the hospital.
Cowart lost both his eyes and all his fingers and underwent several operations for skin grafts and amputations. After he was released from the hospital, Cowart attempted suicide several times. Eventually, he completed a law degree. Cowart frequently speaks at medical conferences on issues relating to euthanasia. He still insists that the hospital staff who treated him for his burns violated his right to self-determination in keeping him alive (1).
Question: Should Cowart have been allowed to die when he requested it?
