another essay on carver

Essay Prompt

Write a minimum 3-page essay (minimum 750 words) that either supports or disagrees with two of Thomas Carver’s arguments from pages 16-34. In the beginning, you will be arguing with in support of Carver’s arguments or in disagreement with them. You may also find that you agree with one of his arguments but disagree with another of his arguments. This point of view may also be one you can take: to show support for one argument but, then, to argue against a different one.

You agree on #1, but disagree on #1. Both agreement and disagreement should be in the essay.

#1 agreement: Carver argues that ” we could get away from this anthropological, as well as from intuitional viewpoint, and look upon teh whole moral problem as a problem of adaptation and adjustment, we should be a different conclusion”. I agree with Carver’s idea; his argument makes sense to me because in life we all do have to make adjustments to the material universe. In our day to day lives any adjustment that brings out comfortability is good and any adjustment that is uncomfortable is bad(24).

#2 disagreement: Carver elaborates that ” nature is non-moral or that the scientist is unable to discover anything resembling a moral order is virtually to say that nature does not seem to conform to our pro-conceived notions of morality, or that the scientist is unable to discover in the order of the universe anything resembling what he has been taught to regard as the moral order(25)”. I disagree with Carver’s use of this metaphor; the metaphor is the personification of nature. Depending on what you believe in, you could either completely agree with Carver, or disagree. From a religious point of view, to say that nature is non-moral, is to say that the universe is non-moral; if you believe that there is a divine being, then you are also saying the divine being is non-moral for the universe is the divine being.

Also essay should have at least 3 quotes and 3 paraphrases and many sentences that uses semi-colons (big part of essay is the use of complex sentences)
