The Mander Paper
It’s now time to focus on your second research paper, aka the Mander Paper. This paper will examine in detail one of the four arguments in Mander.
Choose your argument. Each of Mander’s four arguments is quite different. Choose an argument based on your interests and strengths. Below is a capsulization of each argument and some of its 21st century implications or connections.
Argument One: Reality reexamined. This delves into psychological realms, primarily. Consider the extent to which we struggle with reality in today’s society. Consider photo-shop, reality television, fake news, etc.
Argument Two: Corporations, advertising, television, and our experience. This delves into political science, economics, and to a lesser extent, psychology. How does corporate control present itself in cyberspace? In mainstream contemporary society?
Argument Three: The physical ramifications of watching television. This delves into biology, physiology, physics, and other sciences. How do contemporary devices such as phones and computers impact our bodies and our health?
Argument Four: The biases in media. This delves into economics, political science, and psychology. How are biases reflected in today’s media? What is the importance of “net neutrality”?
Your paper will include a detailed look at your argument of choice. This look should include definitions of all key terms, an effective summary of the argument, and both an Aristotilian and Toulminian analysis of the argument.
Your paper will also include a detailed look at an aspect of 21st century technology or lifestyle—something that did not exist when Mander wrote Four Arguments. You will apply Mander’s argument and logic to this 21st century aspect of reality. Does Mander’s argument still apply? Why or why not? Would Mander be concerned with humankind’s interaction with this 21st century aspect of reality? Why or why not?
Your paper should be between 5-8 pages long. Include at least 6 sources (Mander counts), at least 2 peer reviewed. Your paper should be impeccably formatted to 8th edition MLA standards. Major errors in MLA format will result in a 10% reduction of your grade. There is a detailed rubric for this assignment attached to the assignment link in our classroom.
