Expository Writing It would not be rash to say that more expository thinking is done than any other kind of mental activity. The child who dismantles a clock to find its secret is doing expository thinking; the official, of however complicated a business, who ponders ways and means, is trying to satisfy his business curiosity; the artist who studies the effect of balance, of light and shade, of exclusion or inclusion, is thinking in exposition; politicians are ceaselessly active in explaining to themselves how they may, and to their constituents how they did. We cannot escape Exposition. The question then arises, since this form of writing is always with us how can we make it effective and enjoyable? All writing should be interesting; all really effective writing does interest. It may not be required that every reader be interested in every bit of writing—that would be too much to hope for in a world where sympathies are unfortunately so restricted. To peruse a directory of Bangkok, if one has no possible acquaintance in that city, might become tedious, though one might draw pleasure from the queer names and the suggestions of romance. But if one has a lost friend somewhere in New York, and hopes that the directory will achieve discovery, the bulky and endless volume immediately takes on the greatest interest. Lincoln, driven at length to write a recommendation for a book, to escape the importunities of an agent, wisely, whimsically, wrote, "This is just the right kind of book for any one who desires just this kind of book." Wide though his sympathies were, he recognized that not every one enjoys[Pg 3] everything. The problem of the writer of exposition is to make as wide an appeal as he can. Interest in reading is of two kinds: satisfaction and stimulation. And each of these may be either intellectual or emotional or both. The interest of satisfaction largely arises when the questions which the reader brings with him to his reading are answered. A reader who desires to know what is done with the by-products in a creamery, where the skim milk goes to, will be satisfied—and interested—when he learns the complete list of uses, among them the fact that skim milk is largely made into the white buttons that make our underclothing habitable. The reader who leaves an article about these by-products with the feeling that he has been only half told is sure to be dissatisfied, and therefore uninterested. In the same way, when a reader picks up an article or a book with the desire to be thrilled with romance or wonder, to be taken for the time away from the business of the world, to be wrenched with pity for suffering or with admiration for achievement—in other words, when a reader brings a hungry emotion to his reading—if he finds satisfaction, he is interested.

Comfort Ye My People is born of the authors endeavor, to portray the sentiments of the Living God, towards His people (Jew and Gentile) and to lift, thanks and praise to Jehovah God Almighty, in gratitude for His love towards us. Both title and content were inspired by the Spirit of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The new testament account of Gods dealing with the descendants of Abraham reveals Jesus Christ as the Messiah of both natural Israel (the Jewish nation) and the spiritual Israel (the Gentile believers). The spirit of Christ spoke by the prophet Isaiah in the Book of Isaiah. chapter 40 verse 1 and 2 concerning Israels warfare and comfort. He is the same Spirit who indwells the true believer, and who ministers comfort through and by the ministry gifts, for the strength, peace and prosperity of his people--both Jew and Gentile. Our prayers are for the peace of Jerusalem and for the prosperity of those who love her. So we, as the prophet proclaimed, endeavor to carry out the command. "Comfort Ye My People: Saith your God: Speak Ye Comfortably to Jerusalem and cry unto her that her warfare is accomplished and that her iniquity is pardoned: for she has received of the Lords hand double for all her sins". Isaiah 40:1-2.

Preludes to Insight

This book is a study of creative drive and creative cognition in the context of expository composing processes. Highlighting incubation (the second stage of the creative process) as a crucial but often misconstrued and/or neglected event in the quest for insight, the author explores the nature of this elusive phenomenon from various angles, while also forwarding an argument of special significance to teachers of writing. A pedagogy informed by incubation theory can uniquely and profoundly assist students in negotiating the complex demands of producing text that rises above what might be labeled ""perfunctory"" or ""mundane.

The Philosophy of W V Quine

How we acquire our theory of the world is for W. V. Quine the central question of epistemology. Gibson sets forth Quine's philosophy as a systematic attempt to answer this question; his analysis challenges those who might view Quine's theses as multifarious and disparate. Since many studies of Quine either attack of defend positions on specific issues, the broad scope of this essay makes it unusually valuable to philosophy students and to the general reader. "An eminently useful first step toward a full-scale evaluation of one of the most distinguished of contemporary philosophers and an excellent initiation to an important section of contemporary philosophy." - Jaakko Hintikka, Florida State University "Superbly organized and documented and sensitive to Quine's chronological development. Gibson makes a convincing case for viewing Quine's philosophy as centrally epistemological, and Quine's austere edifice looks more impressive than ever." -- Ethics "An accurate, straightforward, sympathetic summary and exposition, useful to students who would like an overview of Quine's philosophy." - Gilbert Harman, Princeton University "Presents Quine's philosophy as a systematic philosophy in a clear and plausible way; it provides a general and connected view of Quine's many contributions, a view that could only be obtained otherwise by a lengthy study of the original sources." - Henry Kyburg, Jr., University of Rochester

Although sentence-combining researchers acknowledge the importance of syntax-to-discourse transfer, their treatments have achieved it in varying degrees through unclear procedures. Improving the Expository Writing Skills of Adolescents suggests effective strategies for contextualizing learning in the English language arts, focusing on a novel method of syntax instruction called 'discourse-function sentence combining.' The language arts objectives are integrated with ninth grade biology materials.
