• Paragraph 2: Articulate what you take to be the strongest objection to the argument from Paragraph 1.

• Paragraph 3: Articulate what you take to be the most reasonable response someone could give to your objection from Paragraph 2.
• Remember that this is a philosophy paper and not an opinion paper! You need to give reasons to support your objection and response that address at least one kind of philosophical concept we have discussed in this course (e.g., rights, duties, liberty, harm, justice, care, etc.).
