Assignment 1: Essay
Due Week 4 and worth 100 points

one (1) of the three (3) reading selections from the list of topic
choices below. The focus is on brief but important primary source
material written by major authors. Read the selections as identified
with each topic below. Write a three to four (3-4) paragraph essay (250
words minimum) which analyzes the “surprise ending” of the reading

Topic Choices

  • Reading selection from
    Descartes’ Discourse on the Method (Part IV). Descartes begins with a
    proof of one basic conclusion and ends with a proof of something much
    grander. Remember to focus on the surprise and point of realization, not
    the details of the philosophical argument. Read Part IV of the
    Discourse on the Method located at… (then scroll down to Part 4, pp. 14-18). This is only four or five (4 or 5) pages of the larger work.

For the reading selection you choose:

  1. Clearly state in
    your own words the “surprise ending” in the reading you selected.
    Clearly identify the point in the reading when you realized that there
    were elements in the reading that surprised you. Not all of the
    surprises come at the end.
  2. Evaluate how successful the author
    was in convincing you to accept the validity of the “surprise ending”
    that was different from what you expected.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be
    typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with
    one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA
    Style format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
    (Note: Students can find APA style materials located in the Additional
    Resources section of their Student Center within their course shell for
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the
    assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title,
    and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in
    the required assignment page length.
  • Use the source(s)
    identified above for the topic you choose, focusing on the main primary
    source of that author. You may use additional sources also if they are
    of good academic quality for college papers (Wikipedia and similar
    websites do not qualify). Use proper APA style in-text citing and also a
    matching APA style References list at the end.
