The Writing Center has created this site to help answer some of the more common questions that students have when writing in the discipline of philosophy. The information provided on this site is not applicable to every philosophical writing assignment; rather, it is meant to be used as a broad guide for various writing assignments.
Whether you are uncertain about your thesis statement, proper citation style, or the correct way to integrate quotations, here you can find helpful tips and examples, as well as links to research resources, to use while writing. Please explore our site, using the tabs and drop down menus above.
We encourage you to speak with your instructors if you are unclear about major elements of your assignment. The resources on this page are intended to be used to help you brush up on your skills, not replace advice from your instructors. This page was developed by Writing Center tutors, with input from the SIUC faculty.
