In about 700-900 words (approximately 3-4 pages), do the following:
Explain the correspondence theory of truth. Explain the difference between the instrumental value of truth & the intrinsic value of truth. According to Paul Harwich, why does truth seem to have more than just instrumental value? Explain (in doing this you will have to explain why he thinks truth is worth pursuing). According to Stephen R. Grimm, why does truth seem to have more than just intrinsic value? Explain (in doing this you will have to explain why he thinks truth is worth pursuing).
Your paper must be written in a standard 12-point font, Times New Roman, double-spaced, with one-inch margins on all sides. Its pages must be numbered by your word-processor.
1. The first paragraph must effectively, and clearly, introduce the topic and purpose of the paper.
2. Do not begin your paper with a sentence like Since the dawn of time, humans have wondered about the nature of Truth, or something along those lines. Just get to the point of the paper. Instead, you can begin with something like This paper critically examines . Or begin with a quick description of the intuitive force of the corresponded theory of truth. Then you can move into what the topic/purpose of the paper is.
3. Write your paper so that it can be understood by an undergraduate student who has taken one prior philosophy course.
4. Make sure your sentences are grammatical and words are correctly spelled (read your paper out loud, or have someone read it out loud to you).
5. Use short simple sentences when possible.
6. Make sure the paper is well structured. In other words, make sure it is easy to follow what you are saying from paragraph to paragraph.
7. Make sure the paper accurately and thoroughly addresses the main questions of the prompt.
8. Adequately define and explain technical terms/philosophical jargon. In other words, would a reader unfamiliar with the material be able to understand the philosophical terms/jargon you are using? (if you are not sure, have someone not taking the class read your paper).
9. Overall, make sure the paper gives a sense that you (the author) understands the material and are able to explain it in a clear and effective way.
