The final essay exam for the course is based on week one assignment the Edge.org. With the Edge.org you are to find yearly questions of interest, AND then pick three RESPONSES from the question. NOT the question of the year itself, but from those who have responded. You may pick three years and one response each, or two/one or one year with three responses. The responses have their own title and if you click on it you will go to that page for the response so that the url for the reference list is from the actual response page.
After you pick the three responses, you will chose one of them to be the topic for the final essay exam. The topic must come from a response not from the yearly question, which is by the editor John Brockman. There are many excellent responses each year and you have wonderful topics to chose from such as the Genetic Book of the Dead, things about AI, etc.
your assignment should be no fewer than 750 words. Use the below link.
