COMPARE AND CONTRAST:
McCloy & Methany
In a comparison between the papers, point out similarities and differences between/among entities; cite arguments for and against each side of an issue; and/or identify the advantages and disadvantages of various things. Compare these papers on their metaphysical stance concerning monism and dualism. You may or may not conclude one is a dualists and one a monist; both are dualists or monists; or one or both are eclectic (some of each). Do more than a superficial analysis. Support your conclusions with quotes from the articles. This paper should be between two and three typewritten pages. Sentence structure, grammar, writing mechanics, and content will all be evaluated. These articles will not be discussed in class. They are to be read and compared by you individually. What you conclude is not nearly as important as how you argue for your conclusions.
The purpose of this assignment is to write an editorial opinion about issues of human movement or health. The evaluation will be based on your analysis of the issue and arguments that are presented by you. You must support your opinion with citations from professional journals, references from valid, outside resources, and expert testimony. The opinion paper should not exceed two typewritten pages. Sentence structure, grammar, writing mechanics, and content will all be evaluated
Pivotal to Metheny’s case is her particular notion of the body as “the physical manifestation of the person, his mind, his emotions, his thoughts” (1954, p. 27). The use of the term “physical manifestation” may denote the body as one aspect of some unitary whole, or, as is mentioned at the start of the paper (p. 27), one of three dimensions of that whole. The ‘aspect’ interpretation is reinforced by Metheny’s assertion that the body is “the SELF [presented] to the world” (p. 27), implying the exercise of presentation and, thereby, the presentation of one aspect or view by some other part of that whole. However, this interpretation is complicated by Metheny then explicitly stating that, through the body’s movements, the thoughts and feelings which uniquely constitute the person are expressed. Metheny articulates that idea in different though congruent ways: one, where a unitary whole has different aspects, one of which is the physical body; two, the physical-external-body is the medium by which the internal person expresses itself in the world; and, three, where aspect-presentation—initially interpreted as akin to presenting one ‘view’ of a unitary object—and expression—as active communication—are different degrees of the same mode of physical being. Finally, Metheny caps the idea that thoughts and feelings are expressed through the body’s movement with the thought that “the very act of movement” is not a one-way, person-to-external...
