Relating Philosophy to our Society Today Presentation– Due week 6
You will choose a topic that we have read about and discussed in the course, and create a PowerPoint presentation of 8 to 10 slides of the presentation (which does not take into account the 1st slide: Cover Slide, Last slide: Citations in APA format). Choose a timely topic of your choice found in the news today, closely related to the course material, and the theories, which may include, but are not limited to :
Free Will, Libertarianism, Altruism, Determinism, Ethical/Psychological Egoism, Virtue, Utilitarianism, Deontology, Natural Law, Social Contract, Philosophical Explanation of God’s Existence
Topics can be: Legal, Moral and Political Issues such as Euthanasia, Abortion, Affirmative Action, Death Penalty, Human Rights, Immigration, Climate Change, Incarceration, Justice System, Use of Deadly Weapons, Gambling, Medical Testing on Animals, Cloning Animals, Suicide, Polygamy, Embryonic Stem Cell Research
If you have a topic you are interested in, and unsure of its relevance, you can send to me for approval.
If your topic is directly related to a particular news video or article, please include the link in the presentation. Also, please choose a different topic from your position paper…
Each slide should contain a photo, and bullet points that support the visual image. Please use Speaker Notes to provide a Narrative related to each slide, and properly cite your photos and text in APA format. The Narrative in the Speaker’s notes is VERY Important, as that is the crux of this project. You are telling a story in the powerpoint, so the slides must flow together with an effective narrative to bring this issue to life. The slide itself with bullet points should have very minimal text. Also, cite as you would in an essay in your narrative – use APA format. If you are more tech savvy, you can submit the project with audio…(optional). NOTE THAT YOU CAN USE PANOPTO TO SUBMIT YOUR PROJECT IF YOU WISH WITH AUDIO.
Here are some guidelines to consider:
– What is the significance of this issue in today’s society?
– How does this topic influence culture, or been influenced by culture?
– Articulate your own views on the topic, which may also be informed by experience and background.
