Clearly explicate the thinker(s)’ view by drawing on a few important relevant textual references to explain what motivates your philosophical question.

This assignment consists of three parts.
Part 1: Motivate a philosophical question that arises from the material we covered. Limit
your question to one text i.e. the Analects, the Mozi; the Mencius, or the Xunzi. Explain
clearly why this question is puzzling to you.
Part 2: Attempt to explain how the philosopher might try to answer the question in Part 1
by drawing on textual references available.
Part 3: Critically assess the position you attributed to the philosopher in Part 2.
For this assignment, I am looking for critical discussion. It is important that you:
• Formulate the question clearly. Remember that this is a short essay. Your question
has to be manageable. If the question is too general, you will not be able to
address the question adequately in this short piece. For example:
Too broad: what does Mozi mean by jian ai? ✖
Good question: Mozi on one hand seems to endorse that filial piety is important but on
the other hand urges people to practise jian ai. If we understand jian ai as indiscriminate
love, it seems difficult to understand how it is possible to be both filial in the ordinary
sense and jian ai […elaborate with more textual support] ✔
• Clearly explicate the thinker(s)’ view by drawing on a few important relevant
textual references to explain what motivates your philosophical question.
• Provide a clear argument as to why you agree or disagree with the view.
• Show that you are aware of alternative readings and possible objections to your
• The primary readings provided in your textbook and lectures should be sufficient
for this assignment.
• For copious references, you only need to put down page reference numbers to the
textbook without quoting the whole passage. Or put the passage as an appendix so
that it does not affect your word count.
• Please cite properly.
