    Default Can anyone help with philosophy?

    This is a stretch but I didn't know if anyone on here was good at this sort of thing.

    I'm in a group with three other girls and the topic we got assigned is "the value of being a boyfriend." ..lol, what the heck, the group that got the "value of being a girlfriend" is all girls. Fail on the teachers part there.

    Anyway, I have to come up with about a page or more on "the true functions of the issue." Basically "what do they do." I have no idea what to write. I would just wing it and write random stuff down, but I need to have several sources.

    I cannot find anything at all on google.

    Help?? If anyone knows anything I'd really appreciate it.

    um if it were me I would ask @sheshistory I know she was working on a doctoral dissertation I believe so that's where I would start. Good Luck.

    First, Ive only had one 3 credit course in Philosophy so Im a long ways from an expert.
    Start by making a list of what you conceive to be the attributes of a boyfriend. Then take each of them and thru discussion analyze what value each has and what they contribute to the relationship. Once you do this it should flow into a summarization.

    or not

    Um...

    Dr. Jill doesn't know. (I never cared for philosophy and I don't understand the assignment.) However, I would try to use the texts your professors has provided for class as some kind of guide or framework instead of using Google.

    I'm no philosopher I guess but I'm guessing we have some on the board!

    Thanks guys xD

    @sheshistory Umm I don't understand the assignment and I'm in the class. I don't understand the teacher either. He's from Nigeria and has a really thick accent. He literally sounds like Rafiki from Lion King..but worse. He's an intelligent man I just can't understand him.

    The work sheet says:
    On The True Function of XYZ or ZYX
    1. What does XYZ or ZYX do by virtue of being XYZ or ZYX?
    2. What exactly does XYZ or ZYX do by the virtue of being XYZ or ZYX?
    3. What should a good XYZ or ZYX do by virtue of being XYZ or ZYX?

    ..don't even ask me what XYZ or ZYX is.. Ugggghh. I need to get this done because I don't want to mess up my other group members.

    Replace "XYZ or ZYX" with "boyfriend", try to answer the question using research, and you pretty much got it. Is this for undergrad?

    Some sources you can use for your research:
    1.) The Boyfriend Test by by Dr. Wendy Walsh
    - This book should have an extensive list of what a good Boyfriend should do by virtue of being a Boyfriend.

    Then you can bounce that off of some real-life boyfriends or you can even use some fictional story like Jane Austen Stole My Boyfriend by Cora Harrison to have some examples and talking points of what a boyfriend does.

    Then with that you can have a starting point of trying to determine what is the value of a boyfriend. Hope this helps.

    I got Bullied and loving it!
