Essay Philosophy. Argument Essay #2: The Problem of EvilPurpose/objective.Many articles you read will have complicated dialectics where the author presents anÿargument, gives possible objections to the argument, and then gives a reply. When youÿread articles and you feel that the author is contradicting himself/herself, or is going backÿand forth, this is often an indication that the author is defending an argument against aÿpossible objection.It takes practice writing clearly so that your reader can follow this dialectic. Thisÿassignment will help you organize a dialectic so that you can understand and writeÿsophisticated arguments that handle possible objections.This paper also gives you practice in conversing with others, critiquing other?sÿarguments, or replying to their arguments against your position. Conversations usuallyÿhave a dialectic where someone gives an argument and another person disagrees. It isÿimportant to be respectful and encourage the flow of ideas, so that each person can fullyÿexplain their position and learn from different perspectives. In writing essays, alwaysÿwrite as if the reader has never heard of these arguments or terms.Instructions:Part One: Give a thesis statement and explain the argument for the Problem of Evil.ÿIn this essay, I will examine the argument for the Problem of Evil, a possible theodicy against the argument, and reply to the theodicy.The Problem of Evil is an argument that shows that God cannot be either all- powerful, all-knowing, and/or all good.ÿ[Outline an argument for the Problem of Evil.
