Steven Hagedon English 102 – Section 053 Date Assigned: January 25, 2008 Date Due: January 28, 2008 Aristotelian Rhetoric: Old Style in a New Age Over the ages, many cultures were developed and destroyed, and with that cycle of life, so came and went the styles of writing and history of cultures. However, in today’s society, many Greek and Roman philosophical writings and theories are still around, i.e. Aristotle, Plato, Homer, and Socrates, just to name a few. However, in many forms of academic writing, one philosopher’s teachings and style of writing stands out: Aristotle. Aristotle invented a logical process of inputting an author’s feelings and logical reasoning into their writing without specifically stating what and how they feel about a topic. In this case, Edward Abbey’s work entitled, “The Great American Desert” portrays Abbey’s emotions about the desert and those who visit, yet on a deeper level, Abbey conveys a more philosophical way of explaining his feelings about life. Abbey’s feelings of the North American desert are exemplified, yet he tells about the horrors and fears of living in the desert. From here, Abbey connects to tourism and from tourism, connects to living in nothingness. Edward Abbey’s love for the great American desert not only stems from his love of outdoor activities, but more from a deeper lever, one that exemplifies his love for life.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
