Human Dignity.

in the thought one of the following major Western philosophers: Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Descartes, Locke,
Kant, Hume, Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche, Sartre, Martin Buber, Simone de Beauvoir, or W.E.B. Du Bois. One
should explore how the philosopher defined dignity, how he or she accounted for the basis or cause of human
dignity, and what the philosopher considered to be the implications of human dignity in terms of the ethical, the
social, and the political. Concentrate on how the thinker argued. That is, identify the thinker’s premises
(assumptions), inferences from the given premises, and conclusions ultimately reached. As such, this is to be
an explanatory/analytical paper. This paper is not to be a biographical overview or to be a summary of the
philosopher’s work. This is to be a 3rd person, singular, objective paper (Do not use “I” or “me”). Research
must be internally documented (within the body of the text), and there must be a works cited or bibliography
page. Use either an MLA or a Turabian style in writing. At least five sources are needed; at least one source
should be primary (the writing of the thinker under consideration). Wikipedia and internet blogs are
unacceptable sources. Sources should be both formal and academic, which is the case with almost all sources
found through the library date base. There should be at least four pages of content, along with a properly
formatted works cited or bibliography page. DO NOT PLAGIARIZE. Not only is plagiarism unethical, it is almost
always obvious to the experienced college instructor. The one who plagiarizes both steals from others and from
his or her own self.
All writing should use Times New Roman, 12-point font, double-spaced throughout, with one-inch margins.
Each assignment must be submitted online to the instructor through blackboard using the assignment icon
found through the HOT TOPIC heading. All assignments and tests must be prefaced with the student’s name,
along with course and section numbers.
