One other sample essay mentioned, which I personally find to be quite
useful, is the following:

  * Friedrich Steimann "The paradoxical success of aspect-oriented

Although not specifically related to Haskell or functional
programming, it discusses an apparent paradox in a different
programming paradigm, which could be useful when discussing functional
paradigm-related issues pertaining to Haskell.
