I've got to do a 5000 word dissertation on any topic I want it could be anything from "why is the sky blue?" to "should we be using modern science to help alter and develop the human race".
And to be honest I'm struggling to come up with a unique and interesting essay topic.
Do you have any ideas on any interesting topics?

I’m not sure how good any of these will be, but in my philosophy class we regularly have discussions/debated for an hour and these were the most successful:
-when does a foetus have the right to life? (this can easily cover a discussion about when a person is fully conscious, do we have the right to determine when someone can live, abortion, children who will be disabled/ born into unable families or who are product of rape and issues surrounding the right to life such as determining whether a terminally ill man has more of a right to life than an unborn child who has not yet contributed to society)
- Is suicide selfish
- should prostitution be legalised?
- is patriotism a form of arrogance?
