I’m working on a writing project and need support to help me learn.
For this thought exercise, you will be engaging ONE academic source dealing with a particular definition of justice (in relation to other areas, depending on the source).
First, choose ONE of the attached articles to read (there is one from an atheist perspective, one from a Christian perspective, and one from a Muslim perspective). Of course there are many and diverse understandings of justice within atheism, Christianity, and Islam– these are just particular examples. Then, take your time and read the article, being sure to fully understand what the source is arguing. Note: this will likely take a significant amount of time and effort. Please expect that.
Then, once you are confident that you understand the content of the article, compose a two-part reaction to the article. Your reaction must include at least these two parts:
1. A summary of your source’s thesis and supporting arguments. This should take at least 1 page to complete (if you’re done with this part in less than a page, it’s likely you have missed some important information/arguments).
2. Your own assessment of the author’s arguments on the basis of ethics (meaning it would be a good idea to use some of the course material–like ethical theories we’ve covered–in order to evaluate the source you read this week). Do you agree or disagree with the source? Why? On what basis do you make your assessment? This should take at least 1-2 pages to complete (if you’re done with this part in less than 1-2 pages, it’s likely your thought needs to be more fully and deeply developed, supported, and/or explained).
