Seminar 6

This seminar is a bit different. Instead of discussing a question, we will discuss the short essays you wrote in the light of feedback.


  • Re-read your essay and the feedback (if available).

  • Formulate with care any questions you have about the substance of the essay or the feedback.

  • Rehearse a 90 second oral presentation of how you answered the question in your essay.

Backup Plan

Some seminar groups may not spend all of the time (or even any) on essays.



  1. What is Rini’s main thesis?

  2. Which claims does she defend to support this thesis?

  3. What objections arise to Rini’s main thesis?

Ask a Question

Your question will normally be answered in the question session of the next lecture.
