Some of you may feel that the topic I've provided for the first paper fails to provide enough direction for you. Here's another, more specific topic.
Sagoff (beginning on p. 463) asserts the existence of a useful analogy between the appreciation of an artwork and love for another person. Wilsmore (Section 2 of "Authenticity and Restoration") criticizes Sagoff's analogy. Provide and support your evaluation of the analogy. In doing so, consider the exchange between Sagoff and Wilsmore.
4-6 pages. Due Thursday October 18. However, since I've only assigned this topic today, take a couple of extra days if you need to.
