Questions

Subject: Writing

TutorMe
Question:

Why is audience one of the most important considerations when writing critically (as opposed to creatively)?

Kamran S.
Answer:

Writing is communication. The purpose of communication is to successfully convey information from one place, person, etc. to another. By failing to consider audience, the writer might not be successfully communicating to the reader because they may be using language/ideas with which the reader is unfamiliar. If the writer writes for their intended audience, they increase the chances that the audience will receive the message as close to how the writer intended as possible.

Subject: Sociology

TutorMe
Question:

What is an example of a sociological force, and how might it affect our actions?

Kamran S.
Answer:

A sociological force is poverty. Poverty has the power to compel an individual to make a decision--such as stealing--that they might not make if they were not in poverty. This is to say that the structure of the situation is such that a person's behavior is dictated by those conditions rather than by beliefs or morals.

Subject: Ethnic Studies

Question:

To what extent does the concept of dominant and subordinate social groups undermine the philosophical idea of free will?

Kamran S.
Answer:

A subordinated group member might have less access to opportunities and experiences to which a dominant group member has great access. Agreement with this statement questions the nature of free will. Is free will about social opportunity? About bodily autonomy? About life choices? In any case other than bodily autonomy, it is difficult to see how free will exists equally between groups that are measurably disadvantaged in a society, which in turn means the dominant group member's free will is either derived from another's unfreedom, or non-existent in the capacity in which we typically think of it.
