Do you agree with or disagree with Taylor’s perspective on these images?
Choose one of these three images. In four double-spaced pages, analyze the image of your choice, using Charles Taylor’s arguments about authenticity and identity.
What kind of reasoning does the image employ? (Be sure to discuss the way the various sentiments are expressed – the image, font choice, etc. – not just what the text says.)
How would Taylor respond to the reasoning in your chosen image? (Be sure to use evidence from Taylor’s essay to show that your assumptions about his likely response are well-founded in what he actually says. That is, use quotations that fairly represent what he is trying to argue.)
What do you think about the matter? Do you agree with or disagree with Taylor’s perspective on these images? Why?
