Explain why it might not always be equitable to judge a written argument,, based on whether or not it changed the reader’s opinion about the subject. What should determine whether an argument is well written or not? Explanation: Written arguments express an opinion about the subject. It is an essential document as in the case of court proceedings because it provides a permanent record and can be retrieved anytime. However, looking deeper into it, written argument can be considered an opinion based from the author’s knowledge and sometimes this opinion is being influenced by personal biases and some are based on facts.Written argument sometimes can be an adaptation from other sources such as books or other peoples opinion, it may consider a portion of the subject matter or covers the total aspects and some deliver erroneous opinion and personal hunches of the author.
On the other hand, the reader’s reaction to the written arguments may rely mostly on personal expectation specifically on its instrumentality and valence. The common question raised by the reader is whether these opinions can be a tool to satisfy some needs.Or how does this opinion improve my well being, or how can it help me with my career or is it just a bit of information to fill the brain. If this query is met then the reader’s acceptability is evident. The result may change his opinion or change his perspective.
Basing on the above arguments we can say that it is not always equitable to judge a written argument by just basing on whether or not it changed the reader’s opinion about the subject but how good the written opinion was made. What is a good written opinion? It must be coherent, concise and as much as possible covers every aspect of the subject.
