What is a Review Paper?
The purpose of a review paper is to succinctly review recent progress in a particu-
lar topic. Overall, the paper summarizes the current state of knowledge of the
topic. It creates an understanding of the topic for the reader by discussing the
findings presented in recent research papers.
A review paper is not a "term paper" or book report. It is not merely a report on
some references you found. Instead, a review paper synthesizes the results from
several primary literature papers to produce a coherent argument about a topic
or focused description of a field.
A Filipino entrepreneur Rajo Laurel Enter-
prises has built multiple brands and crafted

some of the most prominent local personal-
ities, including former presidents Corazon
Aquino and Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

What is a
A logical fallacy is an error in reasoning common enough to warrant a fancy name. Knowing how
to spot and identify fallacies is a priceless skill. It can save you time, money, and personal dignity.
There are two major categories of logical fallacies, which in turn break down into a wide range of
types of fallacies, each with their own unique ways of trying to trick you into agreement. A Formal
Fallacy is a breakdown in how you say something. The ideas are somehow sequenced incorrectly.
Their form is wrong, rendering the argument as noise and nonsense. An Informal Fallacy denotes an
error in what you are saying, that is, the content of your argument. The ideas might be arranged cor-
rectly, but something you said isn’t quite right. The content is wrong or off-kilter.
