ESSAY 2

Due: Sunday, March 16


Directions:

You are to write an essay on the topic below. The essay should be about one to one and one-half (1-1&1/2) pages in length (about 500-700 words), typed double-spaced in MS Word. [SUBMISSION SHOULD BE BY E-MAIL ATTACHMENT  AND NOT BY INCORPORATING YOUR ANSWER INTO AN E-MAIL MESSAGE: <ulrichlp@udayton.edu>] You are to (1) recount what the authors you have read on the topic have said, (2) try to relate ideas with each other, and (3) state your own reactions/reflections about the issues under exploration. Please be clear about where your opinion begins. You should not merely state an opinion but give carefully considered reasons for your opinions. Remember that this is a philosophy course and the reasons, which you develop and organize to support your opinions, will be as important as the opinions themselves. Ultimately, you should demonstrate that you (1) have read the text(s), (2) are familiar with the ideas, (3) have thought about them carefully, and (4) have been able to formulate soundly based opinions as a result of the reading you have done.


TOPIC: In the material you are reading in Weeks 8, 9 and 10, identify three (3) important characteristics of Leadership and their underlying values, and explain why you consider them to be important.
