Please review Essay 3: How Science Reads the Book of Nature so that you can share your proposed topic and thesis statement.
Using about 350 words, describe the topic you have selected and how you plan to use a Rogerian Argumentative strategy in the essay.
Then present a potential thesis statement for this essay.
Rogerian Argument Prompts for Essay 3
“The idea behind a Rogerian Argument is that if a writer recognizes other opinions or arguments about a topic, then the writer creates common ground with as many readers as possible. The Rogerian Argument tends to seem more like a discussion than a typical argument, though its ultimate goal is for two sides to come to a mutual agreement, which still involves convincing readers who might initially disagree with the claim”(40).
Please read and annotate pages 40-46 in the text to learn more about the structure of a Rogerian argument and the ways in which Whitehead uses this form of rhetoric in “Religion and Science.” A sample student essay on Whitehead is included.
Here is more information about Rogerian Argument (Links to an external site.) that may be useful. And here is a video on Rogerian Argument that captures what I envisioned for this essay with a delayed thesis statement:
Select one of the prompts below and write a Rogerian Argument (6-8 pages, approximately 1500-2000 words) that cites the primary source/s (the reading/s) and at least two scholarly journal articles that can be found through an academic database, preferably Academic Search Complete: EBSCO-Host. Other readings from our textbook may also be used as additional evidence. Include a Works Cited with a minimum of six citations for the reading selection (Work in an Anthology), the two journal articles, and at least three other reliable outside sources.
1. Whitehead’s “Religion and Science” (221-233): Whitehead writes, “A clash of doctrines is not a disaster–it is an opportunity” (par. 16). How does he defend this statement? In what ways is it a key part of his overall argument? Find an example of a clash of doctrines and show how it has produced opportunities for a new development of ideas and achievements. Choose a recent clash between religion and science or find one in which science clashes with popular belief. Global warming is an area in which science today seems to conflict with widely held beliefs. The same may be said for the recent COVID-19 pandemic as our country and the world grapple with the clash between science and popular belief.
Whitehead’s “Religion and Science” (221-233): In 1925, the argument between evolution and religion involved the entire population of the United States. Teaching evolution in many states was simply unacceptable. Europe seems to have accepted evolution as a scientific fact without a profound religious conflict. Today Pope Francis has said that the Roman Catholic Church does not have a problem with evolution or the Big Bang theory. What are the circumstances of the clash with evolutionary thought in the nation today? How is this clash still controversial and a topic of much heated debate?
Kaku’s Physics of the Impossible” (252-260): Kaku writes about the excitement and the progress of those who are researching and studying artificial intelligence. He writes about the production of machines that, however rudimentarily, seem to have the promise of thinking. It seems that most people want machines that think. Write an essay in which you argue that thinking machines are not desirable now or in the future. What are the dangers of AI? How are thinking machines a potential threat to human life? How would our culture fare if machines could think much as people think? Would our world be better or worse?
Whitehead’s “Religion and Science” (221-233) and Kaku’s Physics of the Impossible” (252-260): Kaku seems somewhat pessimistic about the possibility of creating a thinking robot. However, he is looking only a hundred years ahead. A thousand years from now, such robots may well exist. If they do, how will religions that base their beliefs on our current holy books respond to the robots’ existence? Connect the religious perspective of Whitehead with the ideas that dominate Kaku’s concerns about artificial intelligence. What are the most likely fears that the majority of religions would raise? Why?
Write Your Own Prompt: If none of the above prompts is appealing, you may write your own, but you need to send it to me for feedback before you proceed with the writing process. You may use one or more of this unit’s readings to build the prompt, but ultimately you will need to address the overall theme: How Science Reads the Book of Nature.
Design a Research Presentation Project: If you would prefer to answer one of the prompts using another format, you may create a multi-modal project instead,which you can do with a partner. To make sure that the project is manageable, you will set up a Zoom conference with me at least three days before the Proposed Topic and Discussion Blog.
