Philosophy

Hello can someone help me? Philosophy is such a different language for me, I have been reading for hours and feel like I am from another planet...

I am supposed to write a pursuasive letter to a european philosopher...

Write a persuasive, formal letter to a specific European philosopher. In the letter, argue that this philosopher is incorrect in his or her view about a particular issue.
Provide support from your readings, examples from your experience, and your own analysis to prove the philosopher wrong.
