1) Read the article by Jean Paul Sartre, Existentialism is a Humanism
(2) Watch the video
(1) after reading Existentialism is a Humanism formulate a thesis about the text that addresses one of the major philosophical themes, such as the idea that human beings are entirely free, existence precedes essence, and bad faith. For example, you can address questions such as:
–Are we free? What does it mean to be free?
–Does freedom mean we can do whatever we want? Do we still have moral responsibility?
(2) after exploring one of themes in Sartre’s Existentialism is a Humanism, you will need to compare Sartre to Kant. For example, if you took up the question of freedom, how would Sartre’s views on freedom compare with those of Kant?
(3) draw three conclusions and support them by the arguments you made in your paper
Paper should not just contain summaries of the text by Sartre, but a unique engagement with Sartre’s writing.
Paper must be 3-4 pages, times new roman, double spaced, 12 point font. Please only include the title in the paper. Do not include my name, your name, the date, or the name of the class.
(1) You will need 5 secondary sources for your research essay. They must come from a book; online sources will not work. Therefore, you will need to visit a library in order to write the essays.
(2) You will need to develop a thesis, and your paper must have an (1) introductory paragraph with thesis statement, (2) three body paragraphs, and (3) conclusion.
(3) You will need to quote the secondary sources and the text in MLA style. Do not use excessive quotations; however, quote the text when needed. All quotations should follow MLA style. Again, keep quotations to a minimum, but do quote the secondary sources when needed.
