Aristotle talked about moral virtue. We can use our reason to regulate our feelings so as to develop good habits of emotional response. We can direct our emotions in a habitual way: over time, we can change from being an angry person to being a calmer person; over time, we can change from being a cowardly person to being a courageous person. We can change from being someone who gets upset in traffic to being someone who stays focused in traffic. We can change from being someone who is very afraid of spiders or snakes to someone who can handle those animals. In short, we can develop a habitual skill for feeling in the proper way.
In this assignment, you will talk about a skill you have, the role reason plays in that skill, and if that skill makes you a better person. That is, think about some sort of skill that you use—driving a car, brushing your teeth, speaking a language, (or a second language), playing a sport, exercising a virtue you have, etc. seeing how reason relates to it and how it may improve your soul. This assignment has two parts. In the first part of the paper, you will talk about what role, if any, reason plays in acquiring and using this skill. For example, did you have to learn rules and if so, what rules and how did you learn them? Did you have to stop and think deliberately about what you were doing? Do you still pause and have to think about this skill? Do you still have to listen to other people’s advice concerning these skills? Do you have to learn more about this skill? You will show me how reason operates, if at all, in your getting and using this skill. Then, in part two, you will discuss if having this skill helps you perfect your soul. That is, does having and using this skill make your soul better? Are you a better person because of this skill? If so, why? If not, why not? Give solid reasons for your position.
This paper is both a descriptive paper and an argumentative paper. In part one, I am asking you to describe well a skill you have and how that may or may not relate to reason. If the skill does require reason, explain to me, in some detail, what that is like. If the skill does not require reason, explain why reason is not needed for the skill and what other parts of you, besides reason, help with acquiring and using the skill. In part two, I am asking you to make an argument: you will demonstrate why this skill helps your soul or you will demonstrate why it does not help your soul. You will argue either that this skill is important for you having a good soul or you will argue that it is not important for having a good soul. You will give good, solid reasons for your position.
Everything in your paper relates to your thesis statement. You set up the thesis statement, you state the thesis, you defend the thesis, and you recap the thesis. Avoid unnecessary words, sentences, or paragraphs that do not so relate to the thesis. Keep your paper on target.

- Intro. Introduce the sort of skill you are going to talk about. You also present a thesis statement in your introduction.
- Body of the paper
- Closing Paragraph. Wrap up and conclude your paper.
- Have one paragraph about what role, if any, reason played in acquiring this skill
- Have a paragraph about what role, if any, reason plays in how you use that skill today
- Have a paragraph about whether or not this skill helps your soul
- Have a second paragraph about whether or not this skill helps your soul
Paragraph. Wrap up and conclude your paper.
AND REMEMBER: “Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all his sentences short, or that he avoid all detail and treat his subjects only in outline, but that every word tell.”
William Strunk, Jr. (1918). The Elements of Style. Ithaca, New York.
