I expect about 8-10 pages, with a bibliography, although footnotes are not necessary.
Topic: "Philosophy and Freedom and Speech"
This is very important: all papers are to be written in the first person. I want to see how you personally have learned something from this course, or personally feel about your topic. I want to see that you are taking some knowledge away with you.
Please don't write too (fancy) advanced language, just regular basic language.
