The Final Exam
Choose one theme and write an essay. Observe the format above.
1) Suppose you are writing a book entitled The Elements for Philosophical Understanding of Digital Age using class notes. Write an introduction to the book in English or Korean.
2) Suppose you are writing a book entitled The Elements for Philosophical Understanding of Digital Age using class notes. Write a conclusion of the book in English or Korean.
You may quote class notes or other materials. In that case you have to quote using quotation marks (“ ”) and mention the source with the exact page numbers in parenthesis. For example, “Example phrase” (Class notes, p. 132). If you do not use quotation marks to quote or omit the source for the quote, your essay will be regarded as the work of plagiarism and thus will not be graded. Your essay should be an appropriate mixture of class summary and your own ideas. Do not base your essay solely on quotes; that will be counted as plagiarism, too.
