Begging the Question

Not all answers to a question are created equal. Sometimes what seems like an answer is nothing more than a subtle restatement of the question. When this occurs, the one giving the answer has committed the fallacy of begging the question.

The term “begging the question” is sometimes misused. This commonly happens when an answer to a question raises further questions.
