this paper must be 2000 words count minimum. I picked option #2. Although, the instructions call to imagine you are 15, it does not have to be written about yourself. it can be written in the perspective of another person, but if it helps to write it, i am a girl, not a guy. In my opinion, i am a soft determinist, but the paper can be written using either soft determinism or hard determinism, whichever is better for the person writing it. This assignment is due 5/3/2018 at 11:59 pm. i also need a works cited page along with the essay. please read the instructions and rubric carefully. The name of the book we use in class is called Philosphy: The Quest for Truth; 10th edition. by Louis P. Pojman & Lewis Vaughn, ISBN: 9780190254773
