b. Exigence in a rhetorical situation refers to an urgent problem that needs to be solved and an effective speech will address the problem and try to deliver a solution or at least bring awareness to the problem. In the above example, the exigence is that the decision about the next Student Union president has to be made by the deadline. c. Audience in a rhetorical situation refers to the people who can be influenced or persuaded by the speech. Sometimes the audience can be all citizens who have access to information through newspapers or TV such as during the ongoing US presidential election campaign. In our example the audience is Alice T’s fellow classmates who she is trying to persuade to vote for her.
The drawings usually consist of cracking or packing to provide a certain party a political advantage over the opposing party. Another way political parties influence congressional elections is through candidate backing as well as, candidate recruitment. Political parties have recently been more active in seeking candidates to endorse for campaigns et al., 2007).

The ideas of dualism have drastic impacts on historical and contemporary philosophy, many of those effects in my view are negative. It would take far more time than I have available to express the totality of my disagreements with dualism so for now, I will focus on dualism and ethics, more specifically, ethics in relation to free will. As must always come before a proper argument definitions are in order. For the purposes of this paper I will be using the term “Dualism” to refer to “the idea that the mind is separate and distinct from the physical body yet maintains at least a unidirectional transfer of information” While there may be some dualists who would take issue with this definition (for example some proponents of epiphenomenalism who believe the mind is separate from the body but that it has no
Stereotyping is an issue that has been going around the world and causing minor and major conflicts in society. It is agreeable that it is morally unacceptable. For written task 1, I felt the desire to combine two interesting aspects in either part 1 or 2, I have always been fascinated by propaganda but primarily it is the stereotyping I wanted to get in to. Not because the phenomenon interests me, but because I like thinking about its effect on society, since it is a very intimidating, though accepted, occurrence. In this written task, I wanted to present these thoughts, I did this by writing a speech, done by a man called Paul Carter, a former historian, now overwhelmed by the idea of making the world a better place, he is most likely frequently
In Fitzek’s novel “The Eye Collector”, there is a classic line which Zorbach utters nearing the end of the novel that will stick with most readers: “How could I have been so blind?” This revelation is especially striking considering the numerous warnings from the Eye Collector to Zorbach to relinquish the case. The juxtaposition of Gregoriev’s physical disability to her visions of the future complicates the plot in which the theme of metaphorical blindness is prevalent. This is further strengthened by the backward chaptering of the book and third person narration in retrospect by the unnamed narrator. This essay will discuss how the theme of metaphorical blindness is brought out through the plot devices, structure and diction used. Zorbach’s blindness is illustrated by his being led involuntarily into the heart of the case by the false radio broadcast and his planted wallet at the scene.
Political polarization sounds like negativity in the public; however it may help political processes. As it mentioned at the beginning, political polarization may create more problems in the political process and in the country. Is there any good of political polarization? Yes, in addition to these views, which regard political polarization as a negative situation, there are suggestions that political polarization may be useful for social and political processes. According to RAND Corporation’s studies on political polarization in United States of America, “there are positive sides of political polarization”.
“It's discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit.”(Noel Coward) F. Scott Fitzgerald's book “The Great Gatsby” shows themes of lies and deceit throughout the book.Many characters lie to the ones they love while also tricking them into believing things that are not necessarily true. With these themes in mind, it would be logical to change the title of this book to “Secrets, Secrets are no fun.” Many quotes throughout the book supports the changing of the title. One of the first instances where a supporting quote of lies and deceit can be seen in the story is, in a scene where Tom and Myrtle are discussing daisy. On page 33 Catherine says, “ It’s really his wife that’s keeping them apart. She’s a Catholic, and they don’t believe in divorce.” This elaborate lie is told with ease from Tom so Myrtle believes that it is ok for them to continue with their affair.
In her mind she has already broken the law, but she thinks beyond her crime into the interrupting Creon 's law and preparing herself for the punishment ahead. Antigone is willing to go against the norm because she believes it would ease her conscience and reveal what is just, however this act is violent in itself (Arendt 1969:75). This reveals the struggle between the individual (Antigone) and the state (Creon). Benjamin states above that thoughts are fragments, which carry the relationship between thought and action (1968: 50). This is clear to see that Windston and John’s previous lives come in fragments, it is disconnected from one another, but they can relate to each other.
As a reader one has to know what to look for and identify the main idea and understand what the author is trying to argue. Before taking Writing 10 I felt I was a good reader and able to identify the main idea in a prompt, but little did I really know. After going through the research process and trying to identify reliable sources I have essentially cut out the unnecessary information and I go straight to the idea or argument being made by the author. As of before, I would focus on every detail of the writing. Having been assigned readings and having discussions about the readings during class, I soon realized that writing is about an argument being made with supporting evidence.
