[ORDER SOLUTION] Immanuel Kant Enlightenment Analysis
Write an essay of approximately 500-750 words examining and evaluating Immanuel Kants ideas about the Enlightenment as written in his essay, What is Enlightenment?. Be sure to address the following points: What does Kant feel the difference between an enlightened age and an age of enlightenment are? What does Kant mean when he writes about public use of reason versus private reason? Does he favor one over another? What do you feel are some of the strengths and weaknesses of Kants argument? Read Kant’s essay at least 2 or 3 times. It’s something that can’t be read just once and fully understood. My Expectations Relative to Learning Activities and Written Assignments The activities of this course are thinking, absorbing material to think with by reading, and communicating your thoughts in a series of succinct, clear essays. In order to think properly, you must have material to think with; hence, there is a good deal of reading–exciting, interesting reading, we hope–to supply you with this material. In order for us to know how well you have absorbed the reading and how constructively you have thought about it, we have to see some evidence. Thus, you will be asked to write a number of well-thought-out, carefully composed essays in which you will be asked to convey the fruits of your reading and the results of your reflections upon the material. In order to provide you with as complete a training as possible, we are asking you to write formal academic papers. We expect your essays to be well organized and properly annotated. As we hope you are aware, you do not just annotate direct quotations; you annotate everything that you get from anywhere but out of your head. It is not necessary to distort your paper with unnecessary quotations. You can, and should, cite sources of information even when it is in your own words, as in fact it should be most of the time. Your written assignment is intended to test your understanding of important concepts and discover how to sharpen your intellectual skills of analysis, synthesis, evaluation, and application. The intent of the written assignment is to provide an opportunity to more fully describe, explain, and analyze the books and other sources. When you submit your written assignment, I ask that you submit it as an .RTF file attachment, as these usually retain your formatting.
