The Amalgamated Union of philosophers, Sages, Luminaries and Other Professional Thinking Persons
If you are a professional thinking person then this is the place for you!
Here is our simple manifesto:
We don't demand solid facts. What we demand is a total absence of solid facts.
It is our domain to take care of the eternal verities. Under law the Quest for Ultimate Truth is quite clearly the inalienable prerogative of your working thinkers.
We demand rigidly defined areas of doubt and uncertainty. (Otherwise, what is the point of us sitting up half the night arguing whether there is, or is not a God, only to find out that some machine has worked out his phone number by morning).
Any deviation from this manifesto by the establishment will result in an immediate National Philosophers Strike. (Although we are not quite sure who that will inconvenience).
I would just like to point out that these essays as supplied "as is" and are in no manor to be substituted for another persons work. Why? Well firstly, its against university rules and will get you expelled. Secondly, Cheating doesn't help you when the finals come around. Thirdly, some of these essays didn't score to well (40-60) and some scored really well (60-72), and I'm not going to tell which is which! So just use them as a guide to be used or ignored, whatever. I hope they help you and good luck:
