Take-Home Paper Assignment 1
I. Please answer any one of the following paper topics/questions. If you want to write about any other topic/question listed below, you must clear it with me two weeks before the writing assignment is due.
1. Explain, reconstruct, and evaluate the first version of the Argument from Evil discussed by Sober. Make sure your paper minimally addresses such questions as (a) why does the problem of evil arise only with a conception of the 3O God? Why couldn’t the problem arise if one of the properties were removed? (This is part of the explanation); (b) What is a theodicy and how is it supposed to work as an objection to the argument from evil? (c) Do you ultimately think that the theodicy attempt to refute the problem of evil is successful? Use Sober’s discussion in the evaluation process. Use plenty of concrete examples!
2. Explain, reconstruct, and evaluate Pascal’s argument for why, even in the absence of knowledge, one should believe that God exists. Your paper should minimally discuss (a) the distinction between evidential and prudential reasons for belief and whether belief acquisition can be successful on prudential basis alone; (b) Pascal’s actual argument for why is it prudentially better to believe in God than not (the detailed gambling process); and (c) some of the assumptions in Pascal’s argument. Use plenty of concrete examples!
