PWR 1EE: Writing & Rhetoric 1: Prowling Toward Certainty: Exploration as Argument

In a culture that rewards people who write and speak with conviction, ambivalence often seems like a personal shortcoming that must be remedied with certainty. but what if, instead of sweeping your ambivalence under the rug, you tried to embrace it in your research and foreground it in your writing? What advantages can be found in the deep, risky waters of uncertainty? Can ambivalent texts move and persuade us? In this course, we'll explore such questions in an attempt to understand the relationship between ambivalence and persuasion. We'll analyze and discuss the ways that writers such as Annie Dillard, Stephen Jay Gould, and Michael Pollan not only engage their ambivalence but weave it into their prose. Most importantly, we'll explore how you can develop rhetorical strategies and habits of mind to achieve results in your own analytical and persuasive writing. We'll study how to craft compelling arguments that do fuller justice to complex emotions and ideas.For course videos and full descriptions, see https://vcapwr-catalog.stanford.edu.
