Definition
a scholarly, lengthy paper written to explore a specific topic
  • As David Krogh describes it in his treatise Smoking: The Artificial Passion, psychologists have what they call "lie" tests in which they insert inarguable statements — "I do not always tell the truth" or "I am sometimes cold to my spouse" — and if test-takers consistently deny these statements, it is taken as evidence that they are not generally truthful.
