Analysis paper

Question Description

Kindly write an analysis paper(at least 700 words – 3 pages), and please follow the below guidelines and the instructions carefully.


- Sapiens, by Yuval Harari. Chapters 2



Analysis is one of the many tools that writers use to take a position. A crucial first step to analytical thinking is to be able to summarize another person’s perspective. But an analysis is also an argument. So in addition to summarizing a key point in either Sapiens or Geography of Bliss, you will now talk back—agreeing, disagreeing, or partially agreeing. You will also be able to use your own close reading skills and pertinent first person experience as evidence to support your argument.


Analyze a key themefound in one of the chapters we have read in the class so far. Construct a “they say/I say” paper that summarizes the source/point you’re exploring, before moving into your own analysis. Maybe you want to explore a provocative issue (like all religion being a “myth,” or that the way to happiness is through altering our biochemistry.) Or something else from our readings. Find a point that genuinely interests you.

Then start with summary. Carefully and fully explain what it is the source argues. Then once you’ve offered a summary (i.e. “they say,”) you should give a thesis statement (“I say”) exploring what you wish to agree with, partially agree with, or refute. Make sure any quotations you use support your overall analysis.

Evaluation Criteria:

- Do you begin by summarizing your source in an analytical fashion, anticipating where your argument is headed?

- Do you identify, in your thesis statement, the claim in your reading that you wish to engage with?

- Is your focus sufficiently narrowed?

- Is it clear that you’ve practiced close reading of the text?

- Does your thesis express agreement, disagreement, or partial agreement?

- Does your analysis paper effectively incorporate summary, paraphrase and/or quotation as support for your argument?

- Do you include appropriate citations in MLA format?

- Is your analysis paper organized and free of grammatical errors?


Typed, double-spaced, 12-point font. At least 700 words (3 pages) , MLA style

Analysis Paper
Homo sapiens are known as one of the most exceptional individuals to grace the world
due to their many abilities which have been developed because of their brain. The developed
brain of the Homo sapiens they say led to the emergence of human beings as the most important
and advanced species in the world. One key theme that arises from the chapters reading concerns
with the cognitive ability of the Homo sapiens which has been developed through sharing of
information. The source argues that it was through the ability of the Homo sapiens to
communicate and think through an evolved brain that led to the emergence of the Homo sapiens
as a more knowledgeable species than birds and animals. The source explains that the ability of
the Homo sapiens to work together and be able to drive the Neanderthals and move to areas
where the humans had not touched or lived led to the development of cognitive ability to invent
many items which are still used and in existence at this age. They say that this ability to develop
different items by the Homo sapiens was as a result of the cognitive ability developed by the
species and the development of its brain.
From the summary of what the article explains about the Homo sapiens, I wish to agree
with many points discussed by the researchers and the author. It is indeed true that the Homo
sapiens have a developed brain which led to the development of many cognitive abilities which
no other species was able to conduct. I would like to explain that through the cognitive abilities
of the Homo sapiens it led to the growth of communication, innovation and invention, and the


ability of the human beings to relate with each other. I also agree with the fact that through the
Homo sapiens exploring areas where human beings have never lived it brought the need of them
coming with measures to enhance their survival in the new enviro...
