Question description

i have the rubric on the file i upload which comes with the requirement of the paper, must be more than 800 words. down here is the theme.

Compare and contrast the three leading theories of free will: (1)

Libertarianism, (2) Hard determinism, (3) Compatabilism. Be sure to

correctly summarize each view, and then provide your own analysis of

which of these views is closest to the truth.

You must use at

least two high quality sources (not Wikipedia, not news articles), but

journals. Use this link to find articles: http://libguides.brookhavencollege.edu/content.php?pid=131948&sid=1131609

Do not write on "political libertarianism" but rather the libertarianism that has to do with the metaphysics of freedom.

Writing a Philosophy paper The topic I gave you asked you to “compare and contrast” a position or idea or argument. There are five elements you must address in your essay (these six will be the elements I am grading). These five elements correspond to the “EEO’s” listed on your syllabus, and grammar. I will give you a score of 0-5 for each of these five elements. I will then add the scores together to calculate your grade on the essay. If you score a perfect “5” on each element the maximum total score would be 25. I will take your percentage out of 25 and multiply by 50. E.g., if you get 23/25, your percentage would be 92% equaling 46 total points. The “Final Score” is the number that goes into the grade book. I provide the crude scale for each EEO and grammar below. With each scale I have included specific directions that will help you score higher on that criterion. The bold print is what I will use to determine your crude score. I hope that by reading this you will feel confident that you know how to organize and write the essay. EEO #1 To demonstrate awareness of the scope and variety of works in the arts and humanities [Explain both the theory/position in question and an opposing theory/position.
