Textbook we use in the course is A New HIstory of Western Philosophy, Volume 3, “The Rise of Modern Philosophy” by Anthony Kenny. ISBN: 978-0-19-875277-6
Referencing this textbook is enough and in-text citation is required.
Please let me know if you need further information. This is my first time taking a philosophy class. As a science major student, I am clueless to what I should be writing in these essays and the best I have gotten is a B in one out of three essays. I need to get a good grade on this one since I can’t afford to lose my GPA to a lower one, and I haven’t gotten the time to give much in this course as I also have 4 other upper level biology finals.
