Directions
1. Create a document in the word processing program of your choice, but bear in
mind that you finalized document MUST be in Microsoft Word format (file

2. Write an essay, in which you do the following:
a. Carefully explain in your own words the difference between scientific,
philosophical, religious, and speculative claims or explanations. Make sure to
be precise, thorough, and detailed. Your explanations should allow a reader
unfamiliar with the topic to fully understand both the similarities and the
differences between these types of claims or explanations (2-4 paragraphs,
approx. 200-300+ words).
b. For each type of explanation (scientific, philosophical, religious, and
speculative), provide one Pre-Socratic example and one original example of
your own (in contemporary thinking, for instance). For each example, carefully
explain the characteristics that make it a scientific, philosophical, religious, or
speculative claim or explanation (2-4 paragraphs, approx. 200-300+ words).
c. Carefully explain in your own words the notions of materialism, determinism,
reductionism, and empiricism (i.e. the characteristics of scientific inquiry).
Make sure to be precise, thorough, and detailed. You explanations should
allow a reader unfamiliar with the topic to fully understand these concepts
