How to write a crappy philosophy essay…

All of this is good advice!

If you really want to write a crappy philosophy essay, you should think of it more like a book report and less like making an argument with premises and a conclusion.  To be on the top of the crappy essay scale, choose something that has almost nothing to do with questions of right and wrong — then make your report (it’s not a philosophy paper, there’s a difference) all about the facts concerning  your topic and not about the way people should or should not act concerning your topic.

Finally, don’t cite sources — no matter what you do :).
