PHI 210 Week 8 Discussion

 

Please respond to the following: 

What  is political correctness? How is it defined? What’s its goal? How does  it illustrate the power of language? Do research – look for reliable  scholarly sources to find a good definition; explain the term also in  your own words, and provide an example of words or phrases that count as  politically correct.

.

Critically discuss the question: Is political correctness a good idea? 

.

There  are obviously two possible answers to this question. Present those two  answers, and try to provide the strongest argument you can think of in  support of BOTH sides (you’ll need one argument for each side). Then  tell us which side you think is stronger and why.

.

You  may want to consider the following additional questions: Does political  correctness violate freedom of speech? (Please don’t forget to define  the term ‘freedom of speech’ – what is it, what is its goal, where did  it originate? Provide your references.)

.

When  you create your arguments, clearly indicate the conclusion and the  premises of the arguments. Use concrete examples to illustrate your  point.
