I will be linking the article of which you should do the following steps:
1) Summarize the argument, identifying the assumptions (or first principles), the chain of reasoning (include intermediate conclusions), and the conclusion. Verbally describe them and assign a number to each step.
2) Construct a standard diagram for the argument, using the numbers you have assigned. You can do this on the computer with the help of the Insert Symbol and the underline function, but its all right if you draw it by hand and attach it.
3) Ask the Assertibility Question (https://www.dummies.com/education/philosophy/tackling-the-question-of-assertibility/) and decide whether you find the argument convincing, and why or why not. Does the conclusion follow from the reasons given? If not, what is the formal fallacy, or what further reasons or evidence must be shown? Finally, give your own viewpoint on the theme.
6-8 pages, not including references/works cited or title page, should be enough double spaced, any plain 12-point font, standard margins. Include citations from at least 3 different sources, in APA or MLA format. This means that you include quotations or paraphrases in your work, not just list three sources on the back
