Third Place Argumentative Essay
A freshman major in business marketing from Temecula, California, Max Lyons defends German philosopher E.F. Schumacher’s criticism of modern philosophy and his theory of philosophical mapmaking. Lyons fluently synthesizes Schumacher and modern philosopher David Hume’s work to address the philosophical approaches to climate change, while simultaneously navigating the complicated divergence between modern and post-modern philosophical discourse. The essay was written for Dr. Scott Cameron’s First Year Seminar, The Ethical Implications of Climate Change.
