1. Carefully define the terms ‘science’ and ‘pseudoscience’. Thoroughly explain the difference between them and provide your references.
Also, give at least one example of what counts as science, and of what counts as pseudoscience. Explain how you can tell the difference. How do we know when a claim counts a pseudoscience? How can you tell that a claim is truly a scientific claim?
2. Imagine you go to a job interview. Here is the question you need to answer to: Describe a specific example in which you utilized problem solving strategies to resolve a problem in the real world. Make sure to carefully explain what specific problem solving strategies you have used. Provide your references.
3. What is political correctness? How is it defined? What’s its goal? How does it illustrate the power of language? Do research – look for reliable scholarly sources to find a good definition; explain the term also in your own words, and provide an example.
Critically discuss the question: Is political correctness a good idea?
There are obviously two possible answers to this question. Present those two answers, and try to provide the strongest argument you can think of in support of BOTH sides (you’ll need one argument for each side). Then tell us which side you think is stronger and why.
You may want to consider the following additional questions: Does political correctness violate freedom of speech? (Please don’t forget to define the term ‘freedom of speech’ – what is it, what is its goal, where did it originate? Provide your references.)
When you create your arguments, clearly indicate the conclusion and the premises of the arguments. Use concrete examples to illustrate your point.
