So that there is no confusion, I have attached three documents with these instructions. I have attached documents in the past that have been overlooked and not used. Please use the documents that are attached for writing this essay.

To complete this project, revise the submissions from Weeks 2?5, which are attached with these instructions, in light of the instructor’s comments and suggestions, and organize the revised sections so that they form a cohesive analysis of the current event of world overpopulation, which was selected in Week 1.

The project submission should reflect an understanding of the weekly themes listed and their relationship to the chosen topic of world overpopulation. It should also include an introductory paragraph that explains the social/political relevance of your chosen issue and states your view on the issue, which is that the world is becoming overpopulated, as well as a conclusion. This introductory paragraph should include an account of at least one social justice philosophy . In addition, each section should include the following:

1.A thesis that clearly states your view on the issue and how philosophy is being used to analyze the issue. Analyze the relationship of the current event to philosophy.

2.Facts, information, and perspectives from the news articles, which are attached with these instructions, that support your argument.

3.Facts, information, and arguments that challenge your perspective. Explain why they are ultimately unpersuasive.

4.Citations to the two news articles you chose in Week 1, which are attached with these instructions, and the text, Chaffee. J, (2009), The Philosophers’ Way, correctly formatted in APA style.

The essay should include revised versions of each of the following, which are attached with these instructions:

Week 1: Introduction to the final project: Identify your topic, which is world overpopulation, Locate two news articles, which are attached with these instructions.

Week 2: Analyze the philosophical significance of the contemporary social issue using Socratic philosophy.

Week 6: Final project: Revise the submissions from Weeks 2?5 in light of the facilitator’s comments and suggestions, and organize the revised sections so that they form a cohesive analysis.

The paper must be written with vocabulary appropriate to the subject, correct spelling, and grammar, and it must show insights for all the topics as they relate to the current events previously analyzed.
