Dictionary: Philosophy Paper

Philosophy Paper contains a reasoned defense to a claim/thesis. Its objectives is to convince a reader about something that the writer want to say. From a philosophical writing, we can see someone's level of understanding of the subject problem or material because the writer can think critically about that that.

A philosophical paper may require several kinds of tasks, including:

  • Argument reconstruction 
  • Objections and replies 
  • Application 
  • Original argument 
  • Thought experiments

One good example of a philosophy paper is "Computing Machinery and Intelligence" by Alan M. Turing.
