 Write a 700-1000 word paper analyzing an emotional experience. The experience can be your own or that of another person. The experience should be one involving intense emotions such as self-defeating anger, anxiety, guilt, depression. Your analysis should identify and examine:1. The elements of the emotional experience (emotional objects, bodily feelings, replaying of bodily feelings, behavioral changes, emotional reasoning).2. The particular emotion/s in question (anger, guilt, anxiety, etc.) using the E=O + R formula (See examples of such definitions of emotions in your text, p. 8.)3. The emotional reasoning. Formulate this reasoning using the standard form of emotion reasoning:If O then ROSo, RFor example, say O = my friend lied to me; and R = He is a rotten person. Then the emotional reasoning would be:If my friend lied to me then he's a rotten personMy friend lied to meSo, he's a rotten person(See reading on "Emotional Reasoning" and your text, pp. 14-17, for further details).4. Identify any fallacies in the premises (refer to chapters 2-4 in your text, the definitions contained in  Cardinal Fallacies, and your scanning records in Tell Walter);   5.  Show how to refute these fallacies, that is, discuss why they are irrational.6. Discuss how the situation leading to the emotion/s in question might have been more rationally managed using the theory of guiding virtues and other philosophical insights gleaned from the course (see discussions of guiding virtues in your text, chapters 2-4, and the link Guiding (Transcendent) Virtues.7. Discuss a plan of action based on these philosophical insights.PHI1113 RUBRICThis paper will be assessed according to three sets of competency skills:1.     Communicates Effectively2.     Demonstrates Logical/Analytical Thinking3.     Shows Emotional/Moral SensitivityA PAPER = satisfies all or most standards in all three categoriesB PAPER = satisfies all or most standards in two categoriesC PAPER = satisfies all or most standards in one categoryD PAPER = satisfies some standards in one category.F PAPER = does not satisfy any standards in any categoryThe standards of assessment for each of these three categories are as follows:1.     Communicates Effectively•       Presents information about an emotional experience clearly and accurately through the effective selection and organization of information.•       Uses language in ways that clearly and concisely describe the various components of the experience and their relationships.•       In presenting this information, identifies the most significant and relevant facts, definitions, and concrete details of the experience for purpose of analysis.  2.     Demonstrates Logical/Analytic Thinking•       Identifies instances of deductive and inductive inference in the context of assessing the reasoning involved in the emotional experience.•       Identifies key assumptions/premises in such reasoning.•       Identifies major irrational thinking errors (“fallacies”) inherent in such assumptions/premises.•       Demonstrate at least one method of refutation of such fallacies (e.g. reductio, double standards, inconsistency, lack of inductive evidence).•       Shows how to effectively address such fallacies through the application of philosophical ideas or theories.•       Applies such philosophical ideas or theories to the construction of a plan of action.  3.      Shows Emotional and Moral Sensitivity
