Question Description

Important reminders for your essay:

  • Think of your reader as someone who needs your help. Your essay will serve as a tutorial:
    • Organize your thoughts so they are expressed on paper as a coherent whole. Given the constraints of the exam format, you’ll probably write a minimum of four, and a maximum of six paragraphs. These should ‘hang together’ in a way that’s easy to follow; there is a clear progression of ideas.
    • Write intelligibly: sentences must be grammatical and cohesive.
    • Choose your words carefully. Remember, you’re constructing ideas for your reader.
    • Orient your essay around a single point you want to make, using your thinker(s) as evidence.
    • Be sure to present, describe, and explain significant concepts and their relations.
    • Be sure to reproduce a line of reasoning — your thinker’s argument — relevant to the topic question.
  • Do not quote the text. I want to read you, not the thinker in question. Reference any textual evidence you use in your essay in your own words, e.g., ‘Socrates says that he doesn’t know anything…,’ rather than, “I know that I have no wisdom, small or great.”

capacity as per the theory compatibilitism.
Frankfurt locates freedom as being solely within the self and decisions are not influenced
by the past unlike in Sartre's proposition where one's choices are under many influences that it is
hard to determine freewill. This young man has two options to choose from all of which have
