I have to write a paper, and what I'm writing it on (as weird as this might sound) has to be on a very vague "big" question. Basically giving the students the opportunity to get somewhat philosophical (although when I heard the other students ideas, it's just questions like "Where did the earth come from?" or "why do men cheat?"). So it basically goes like: Pick a very vague question, sort of philosophical, and then relate it to a more specific issue and continue. So here's what I'm considering talking about:

1. Determinism (most likely in favor of it)

2. Drug prohibition (not vague enough, so I'd probably talk a little about civil libertarianism, and I'm against drug prohibition)

3. The paranormal (I don't believe in that stuff. This normally would be my least favorite of the 4 ideas to write about, but my teacher believes in ghosts, and I think she'd find it interesting, because she's open-minded to other opinions)

4. The Death Penalty (again, not vague enough, so I'll probably think of a more vague topic and go into a discussion about the death penalty, which I'm against)

Which do you think would work the best?

Weird thing to be doing in English. Thats more of a social studies thing but the UK are different obviously.

Just pick any and get a big thread going and just use the answers from there.

option 3 dude. "paranormal" doesn't have to just mean "ghosts". There's TONS of really strange unexplainable stuff that falls into that category, it could be really interesting

I would go with 1 or 4.

Um, pick a subject with an 'ism', such as nihilism, determinism, humanism, romanticism, etc and then work out a question that lets you discuss whatever you want to talk about. I don't think its the question you should be worried about but more the subject.
How many guitar players does it take to change a light bulb?

Twelve. One to change the bulb and eleven to say they could do it better.

Option 4.

You should do an analysis of Cesare Becaria's Dei delitti e delle pene and how it formed the basis of today's model of the criminal penal system in first world countries. Ha.
