課程概述

This course focuses on conveying philosophical ideas and arguments in English. It has two main pillars. The first pillar is a series of recorded conversations on a number of individual philosophers, with edited, published texts. The second pillar consists in practical training that culminates in the writing of a final essay. This training comprises several components: selecting a topic/gathering material (electronic library resources), reading (what/how to read), writing (writing strategies), and presentation (how to make an effective PowerPoint). 

課程目標
After taking this course, students are expected to have an improved competence in communicating philosophical ideas in English, have a better understanding of philosophical issues, and have had some practice with the various components involved in writing a philosophy essay. 
課程要求
Students are expected to prepare the course materials before class and to engage in discussion. The first pillar requires them to write two summary-style reviews and to take turns in briefly answering the designated questions in writing before class. For the second pillar, students have to complete one bibliographic assignment, hand in a summary of their selected readings, present their essay during panel presentations, and submit the final essay.
