Chapter four of They Say I Say, written by Gerald Graff and Cathy Birkenstein, explain ways to offer your view in a conversation or in your academic writing. Chapter four provide details about the three basic ways to response to other people ideas, such as, agreeing, disagreeing or both. These techniques show his/her stand relative to other’s ideas. Mastering these basic ways can helps readers/writers understand more of where the author or their view stand.

Throughout both Ralph Emerson’s, “Self-Reliance” and Henry Thoreau’s, “Civil Disobedience” the desire to enjoin the reader to take action against society is very significant in each excerpt. In both pieces one is able to understand the prominent theme of individualism, as it is encourage by the writers for others to not fall under the idea of conformity. In “Self-Reliance,” Emerson expresses the idea of how significant it is for people to not conform since it will only hinder one’s growth instead of progressing even further as a unique individual. Likewise in Thoreau’s excerpt, “Civil Disobedience,” he also explains how people will never grow as people, however, he focuses mostly as to how people need to rebel against societal influences such
Both Lippmann and Postman argue the press influenced how our minds perceive things. Lippmann takes it deeper in this chapter to explain how there is a difference between how someone perceives an event and how it actually is. He draws a picture through a triangle of how the event itself, how the human sees it, and how they react to it. This helps prove that there is a different image in each person’s head, because it is perceived in different manners and actions are different based on what the human saw the event. Lippmann states through out we can not truly understand a person, because we do not see everything the way they do.
He explains this through a list of questions using asyndeton that allows the reader to think deeply into the reason a person reads. Patrick Suskind also explains that a person must approach literature with a clear and critical mind. He uses polysyndeton to get the readers attention while listing the important factors a person must keep in mind when effected by the “amnesia in litteris.” In conclusion, if a person were to approach literature with a non clear or critical mind, that person will remember what has been read in a biased fashion. If a person remembers the literature read in this way, this would not allow the person to have an original thought towards that piece of literature or any other piece of literature that relates to the read piece. In result, a subconscious and uncontrollable bias towards much broader subjects is created.

Grant-Davie describes thoroughly the term rhetorical situation and how the development of the definition and its constituents has contributed to the discovery of the motives and responses behind any discourse. The analysis of rhetorical situations could determine the outer or inner influences of the rhetors, the audience, and their particular constraints. Grant Davie supports his claims by using the earlier definitions of scholars and teachers as his foundation. He also addresses his own analysis drawn by life experienced discourses which it also helps the reader understand the causes of rhetorical situations. This is important because it teaches any writer or reader to analyze a situation and think about the options and paths it could lead
