Assessment Instructions

Write an essay in which you express and defend your views on the following issues:

· Consider the rise of modern science during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

. How did Enlightenment philosophers both defend and contribute to this cultural development?

. How did elements of scientific reasoning alter conceptions of the origin and limits of human knowledge?

· Explain the difference between intrinsic and instrumental goods and how modern science embodies an instrumental approach to the relationship between human beings and the natural world.

. Is recognition of our proper place in the context of a vast and ancient universe an essential insight?

. How does it affect our understanding of ourselves?

· Consider how philosophical and scientific reasoning make a difference to our daily lives. (Of course we all benefit from technological advances that came from these ways of thinking, but that is not the point here.)

. In what situations or circumstances of ordinary life is it appropriate to apply philosophical or scientific thinking to seek a solution, resolve a conflict, or make a decision? Imagine you are invited to contribute a post on this topic to a blog about philosophy, like those that appear in The New York Times blog The Stone, the What Is it Like to be a Woman in Philosophy? blog from Wordpress, or Philosophy Nowmagazine.

. How would you argue for (or against) the use of philosophical reasoning in everyday life?
