I’m trying to study for my Philosophy course and I need some help to understand this question.
Select a recent editorial article from a reputable news outlet, such as the New York Times or the Washington Post.
Read the article, identify the author’s conclusion, and write a brief analysis answering the following questions:
- What is the author’s conclusion or main point?
- How does the author attempt to make the case?
- Does the author use logical argumentation? Does the author use rhetoric? A combination of both?
- Is the author’s position reasonable? Why or why not?
