Compare and contrast their answers to the questions:
What is the mental?
What is the relationship between the mental and the physical?
Be sure to do the following in the text of your draft:
Identify the two authors you are discussing
Give basic background on the area in question (Philosophy of Mind)
E.g. List questions that are central to the field, methodologies that are prominent, etc. (esp. if these are relevant to the view’s of the authors you are presenting).
Present each author’s view in detail
Explain not only what each author argues, but the arguments themselves. This will help make salient where and how the authors you choose disagree.
Identify where the authors disagree
Explain the source of these disagreements
E.g. by tracing these disagreements back to deeper disagreements they hold about the mind, methodology, knowledge etc.
Identify where you think each author has the more correct view (This can be nuanced—e.g. While Descartes provides an intuitive and believable view of knowledge, Armstrong’s physicalism is more persuasive than dualism.)
Provide at least one argument (of your own creation) that justifies your response to point 6.
