How can Slater help us see Konnikova’s claims in a new way? Or can she?
Essay Question: Take what Slater has
taught us about mechanical interventions into the human brain and use it to
critically analyze Konnikova’s discussion about authenticity and interaction in
the age of high technology. In your
piece, see if you can use Slater to confirm, challenge, refute, limit, extend,
complicate, raise questions for, or otherwise rethink and reassess Konnikova’s
classic case of the inauthentic? Or are
they something quite different
- Be sure each body paragraph has a quotation from both Konnikova’s and Slater’s essays.

TIPS FOR UTILIZING QUOTES:
CEDP (Cite-Explicate-Discuss-Make a Point)
For each citation you have selected, explicate (i.e., unpack) in 1-2 sentences, then begin developing original commentary and response. Why is this citation significant? How are the ideas the author shares thought-provoking? Do not just summarize the author’s words. Instead, focus on why the ideas in the citation grabbed your interest, and make a point of your own in response. Respond specifically to the actual phrases and ideas your citation contains.
