One (1) “Original Post” addressing one of the three question choices. Minimum of 250 words. Due Sunday at 11:59PM ET. Your Original Post must answer the question fully in all its parts and address possible objections to your reasoning. You must also connect your Original Post to the course by having at least one full sentence quote and citation from one of the Required Readings of the week. The quote should be word for word and contained inside quotation marks and then followed by an inline citation. Once you quote something or even reword something you did not originally write then you need to have it in a reference section at the end of the post (again in MLA format). Please refer to the following resources for help on MLA citation.

Two (2) “Response Posts” to classmates who answered the other two questions (one each). Minimum of 100 words. Due Monday at 11:59PM ET. Your Response Post needs to analyze and consider the ethical reasoning of two of your classmate’s Original Posts. In addition to your reaction to your classmate’s Original Post, your Response Post must ask one or two questions of your classmate’s Original Post. Consider how you might disagree with your classmate’s Original Post or ask your classmate to clarify some part of their Original Post that you didn’t understand.
Two (2) “Reply Posts” answering the questions of two classmates who asked questions in their Response Posts to your Original Post. Minimum of 50 words. Due Tuesday at 11:59PM ET. In your Reply Posts, answer as best you can the questions raised by your classmates. It is in the interactions of Original, Response and Reply posts that you will achieve the learning goals of the week.
Please refer to the Discussion Guidelines and Grading Rubric for further guidance on how your discussions will be graded (70% of your Discussion Grade is in the quality of your Original Post, 30% in your Response and Reply Posts)
Do not cite or use internet sources other than those provided under the Readings and Learning Materials. In other words, use only the learning materials and links provided in this course.
No one can get full credit unless all three questions have an Original Post; since everyone is required to make one Original Post to answer one question and two Response Posts to the other two questions they did not answer, but that their classmates did. Thus, it is a group effort to make sure that all three questions have Original Posts, so please help us achieve this goal each week.

In nearly every paragraph of Jonathan Glater and Dalié Jiménez’s article “Biden’s debt cancellation will help millions, but it won’t end the student loan crisis”, inductive and deductive reasonings and arguments can be found. While making the argument that Federal student loans are “the wrong tools for the job” they utilize inductive reasoning; as they state multiple true premises,
Higher education hurdle for millions
College costs money, someone has to pay
C) Federal loans, deter prospective students from going to college, wrong tool.
Their conclusion is very general and weak. Student loans can be the correct tool for the job, if regulations are passed that change the large carnival hammer they are now.
The strongest argument that I found:
Some critics are saying student loan cancellation is unfair for those who paid off loans
Makes no sense
C) Complaining about a government program that did not exist is not unfair.
This does make sense, as Glater and Jimenez state, complaining that one does not qualify for a government subsidy due to it not existing when they needed does not make them deserving of it.
Other paragraphs are more like an enthymemes, and are missing vital points to make them valid reasons.

The article that I chose to read for this week’s discussion is called In Praise of Sweat, and it was published on NYTimes.com. This article argues that despite sweat/perspiration being generally regarded as embarrassing due to the amount of sweat, the odors it causes or the sweat stains on your clothes; it is actually one of the most important bodily functions.
I would explicate the argument like this:
Humans are one of the few species that regulate their body temperatures through sweat.
Sweat flushes waste products from the body.
Your body produces sweat differently depending on where it originates.
/ Sweating or perspiration is a helpful and essential bodily function.
The main type of reasoning in this article is strong inductive reasoning, as it presents fact about the benefits of perspiration as a necessary bodily function, as well as a few cosmetic benefits. This article also explains how the bacteria on a person’s skin interacts with sweat, and how that person may experience perspiration differently than others.

INTRODUCTION TO PHILOSOPHY
Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave”
The Value of Philosophy
This is final chapter from Bertrand Russell’s (1872-1970) book The Problems of Philosophy. In this chapter Russell argues for the purpose and usefulness of philosophy claiming that philosophy indirectly contributes to the good of society. Furthermore; philosophy is valuable due to the questions that it raises.
