So, do I need to answer both questions in two separate paragraphs?
And can you please explain me the second question? I am quite confused about it.
Were you to survey public attitudes about the value of happiness, atleast in liberal Western democracies, you would likely findconsiderable support for the proposition that happiness is all that reallymatters for human well-being. Many philosophers over the ages havelikewise endorsed such a view, typically assuming a hedonistic accountof happiness. (A few, like Almeder 2000, have identified well-beingwith happiness understood as life satisfaction.)
I have a query regading a “agree-disagree” essay topic that i practised from your site.
It says “It is often said that governments spend too much money on projects to protect wildlife, while there are other problems that are more important. Do you agree or disagree?
So my idea here is to disagree and say that i beleive the govt is not spending too much money on conservation and that is is deserved. So i have made both paragraphs on the importance of wildlife only which justifies govt spend. I hope it is OK to not mention anything in this essay and discuss about “other problems that are more important” , since my arguement is quite in favur of wildlife conservation.
Over several essays, Rav Ashlag expounded on the reasons why there will not be peace in the world until there is unity and brotherly love throughout the world. He also explains that the more the world suffers from the adverse consequences of what researchers, Twenge and Campbell, call “the narcissism epidemic,” the more people will turn their anger against Jews. Subconsciously, people expect the Jews to pave the way for a better society, namely to be “a light unto nations.” Until the Jews carry out this task, the animosity and accusations against them will grow.
In my school, our teachers taught us to consider both positive and negative aspects of the topic. Not just to write about the aspect you support but also to talk about the other side as counter balance. But in the essay given, it only talks about the supported aspect. Can you please tell me which is the best way of writing an argumentative essay?
for discussion essays do we want to write 3 body paragraphs for discussing about one view, discussing about the other view and for our opinion. Or is it ok to write 2 body paragraphs for discussing two views and say our opinion in the conclusion?
Also, in the essay about if art should be taught at school, I also referred to art history (important to our culture). In Germany the subject “art” includes both doing art and later learning about art history. -> would that also be off topic?
first of all I would like to thank you for your excellent resources! I have noticed now twice that I sort of misunderstood the question, or wrote a paragraph about something I am no longer sure is relevant.
About the explanation given, so is it fine to balance the idea? I heard that. if in the first we agree/disagree, we need to support our idea in the body paragraphs, stick to our first choice (agree/disagree) then affirm it in the conclusion. So we will only have one side. But sometimes, there 2 statements which both of them are good things. I feel I can explain better if I support both of sides and that is when the my conclusion become neutral.
What do you think about that?
If then, on the essay, should I write this viewpoint on the introduction, and then in body 1, I write why is it good to have physical education lessons in school, and in body 2, write the importance of diet?
So in the conclusion it will be like, ‘introduction of exercise and physical education sessions in school will benefit people’s weight control, however, the result can be maximized if a well balanced diet is combined’ something like that?
In short, the relationship between money and happiness may depend onwhich theory of happiness we accept: on a life satisfaction view, therelationship may be strong; whereas affect-based views may yield a muchweaker connection, again above some modest threshold. Here, again,philosophical views about the nature and significance of happiness mayplay an important role in understanding empirical results and theirpractical upshot. Economic growth, for instance, has long been a toppriority for governments, and findings about its impact on humanwell-being may have substantial implications for policy.
my opinion of this essay topic is that physical education is important, but it is also crucial to maintain balanced diet. So combination of physical and diet in the key to weight control.
It is important to note that studies of this nature focus on generictrends, not specific cases, and there is no dispute that significantexceptions exist—notably, populations that enjoy high levels ofhappiness amid low levels of material prosperity. Among others, anumber of Latin American countries, Maasai herders, Inughuithunter-gatherers, and Amish communities have registered highly positiveresults in subjective well-being studies, sometimes higher than thosein many affluent nations, and numerous informal accounts accord withthe data.Such “positiveoutliers” suggest that some societies can support high levels ofhappiness with extremely modest material holdings. The importance ofmoney for happiness may depend strongly on what kind of society oneinhabits. An interesting question, particularly in light of commonenvironmental concerns, is how far the lessons of such societies can,or should, be transferred to other social forms, where materialattainment and happiness are presently more tightly coupled. Perhapssome degree of decoupling of happiness and money would bedesirable.
