Use of the passive voice
I have a problem with use of the passive voice in the following example: “This essay will be separated into three parts: (1) the definition of empiricism and postmodernism; (2) the similarity of empiricism and postmodernism; (3) the difference between the two above mentioned concepts.”
Your problem is here: 'will be separated' -- passive voice. With what you are writing, it is difficult to use active voice. Active voice would require you to say something like: "I've divided this essay into three parts". You may be able to use active voice depending on the preferences of your audience.
