Question:

What makes a thesis, a thesis?

Taylor S.
Answer:

The thesis is the central argument of the essay. It is crucial that the thesis be debatable. A writer can and should address the counter-argument, but only to refute it. One cannot be arguing for all sides in an essay. If a writer's thesis cannot be argued against, then it is not a thesis.

Question:

What makes English a valuable subject to master?

Taylor S.
Answer:

Mastering English is arguably equivalent to mastering an understanding of the human condition. Literature allows its readers a window into a writer's mind and a writer's time like nothing else. This is why the subject of English interacts with so many other subjects in the humanities like history and philosophy. Literature is not just a mirror of its writer or the writer's time. It actively participates in the culture that writer is a part of. Understanding literature is gaining compassion. Learning how to wield a language (and thus dissect it, reconstruct it, and interpret it) does not just grant someone intellect–it grants them a sense of skepticism to look at the world through a critical, discerning eye.
