Literature & Writing For Professionals Discussion 3

“A Pair of Tickets,” by Amy Tan

“The Gift of the Magi,” by O. Henry

“A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings,” by Gabriel García Márquez

“Everyday Use,” by Alice Walker

Answer the following questions in one well-organized paragraph for each, using specific evidence from the work itself.

1) In “A Pair of Tickets,” how is Jing-mei (June May)’s attitude about her Chinese heritage different at the end of the story than it was in the beginning?

2) How would our reading experience of “The Gift of the Magi” be different if the story were told entirely from Della’s point of view instead of from the third-person point of view?

3) At the end of “A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings,” why does Elisenda feel relieved for both the “angel” and herself?

4) Why does the mother in “Everyday Use” finally choose to side with Maggie instead of Dee in terms of which sister gets the quilts?

Long Response Questions

  • In Scream from the Shadows, Setsu Shigematsu writes of the philosophies and solidarity practices of the ribu movement: “By recognizing the subject’s constitution in a system of historical and structural violence, such a feminist ethics would recognize that the eruption of counterviolence becomes recognizable only through its break with the normalized (and often nonvisible) conditions of state violence” (170). According to your reading and understanding of the violence of the URA/JRA uprisings and ūman ribu, what are the conditions that Shigematsu is describing? Describe why “critical solidarity,” which often meant being in solidarity with violence, was crucial to their goals.

In Chapter 1, we see that the National Association of Colleges and Employers has found that employers most desire good communication skills in the college graduates they may hire.

  • Do you think you are a good communicator?
  • What have you taken from Chapter 1 that will be your first step towards a better understanding of communication that will help you become a better communicator?

According to Chapter 2, schemata are sets of information based on cognitive and experiential knowledge that guide our interaction. We rely on schemata almost constantly to help us make sense of the world around us. Sometimes schemata become so familiar that we use them as scripts, which prompts mindless communication and can lead us to overlook new information that may need to be incorporated into the schema.  Choose one of the videos in Module 2 and apply this concept.

Discussion Question Response

Question: Chapter 3 in Rosenstand’s The Moral of the Story deals with the issue of moral truth—what is the morally right thing to do in a particular situation and what are the correct principles or guidelines for a living a morally good life? Moral subjectivism is the view that moral propositions are true only relative to the particular beliefs of a particular person or subject of experience; ethical relativism is the view that what is good, right, and morally correct is true relative to a particular cultural tradition and set of behavioral practices; and moral absolutism (this is what Rosenstand calls “hard universalism” is the view that there are universal moral truths or principles that hold for everyone, everywhere, at all times and under any circumstances.

The most common viewpoint adopted by college students today is ethical relativism, and this is probably because it seems to be the most tolerant and fair-minded position, in that it respects diversity and individuality. However, Rosenstand points to a number of problems with ethical relativism. Where do you place yourself on this spectrum of moral stances? Are you a moral skeptic or a moral subjectivist? an ethical relativist? a moral absolutist? If you have never thought about this before, now is the time to do so. Explain why you hold the viewpoint you do, and defend that view from what might be seen as at least one major difficulty with adopting that ethical stance. Alice Walker’s novel, Possessing the Secret of Joy (1992), presents a strong case against ethical relativism by denouncing the practice of female circumcision, or perhaps more accurately termed, female genital mutilation, a traditional practice of certain cultures that is seen as morally correct, as not only the right thing to do, but something that one is morally obligated to do. If you are an ethical relativist, you should be able to show why Walker is wrong for condemning this practice as morally wrong. If those who carry out the practice believe that it is the morally right thing to do, who is Walker, or who is anyone with different beliefs, to tell them they are wrong?

Week 1

Please answer the following question:

What specific aspects of the career path you are pursuing would you like to research further and why? The reason for this question is to get you thinking about a potential area of research or topic you wish to work on throughout the term. It is all right to start with a broad topic at this time since you will have the opportunity to turn it into a viable more focused research question over the next few weeks. Just make sure that the topic you select is something you are interested in enough to work on extensively throughout the term. You will also be free to change this topic as you progress through the course.

Week 3

1.What are two of the most interesting and informative things that you learned from last week’s [Week Two’s] work? In a paragraph or two, explain why.

2. Relative to last week’s topic what, if anything, are you still unsure about?.

Your research question (not a thesis statement — a thesis statement answers a research question)

NOTE: It is strongly recommended that you review Section 2.6 “Finding a good question” from the Badke text.

A 4-5 sentence explanation of why your research question interests you. In your explanation, describe how the focus of your research question is relevant to your academic major and career path. Please also remark on what you wish to learn more about as a result of investigating your research question throughout this term. You may be asked to re-submit your question if changes are suggested by your instructor.

NOTE: You need to have your research question approved by your professor before beginning your work for Week 5. The purpose of the research question is to guide the rest of your research for the term.

Week Four Discussion Forum

Discussion Question: 

 In Week One, we looked at the view of Ruth Benedict (discussed in Chapter 3 of Rosenstand’s The Moral of the Story) a 20th-century anthropologist, who says that, “Normality…is culturally defined,” and “the concept of the normal is properly a variant of the concept of [the] good” (Benedict [from “Anthropology and the Abnormal (1934),]” qtd. in Rosenstand, p. 153, 7e). Benedict is saying that what any culture or society deems to be a good, right, or correct action and morally good, or at least morally appropriate, behavior will in fact be such in relation to the belief system and practices of that culture or society. This leaves the door open for a wide variety of ways of life, of ethical codes, of individual behavior to be acknowledged not only as acceptable, but also as morally good.

By contrast, Christina Hoff Sommers argues that there are basic human virtues that are not relative to time, place, circumstance or situation. Sommers writes, “It is wrong to mistreat a child, to humiliate someone, to torment an animal. To think only of yourself, to steal, to lie, to break promises, And on the positive side: it is right to be considerate and respectful of others, to be charitable and generous.” (Sommers, qtd. in Rosenstand, p. 486, 7e). Just after this passage, Rosenstand asks whether Sommers is right: “Can we just pronounce the virtues of decency, civility, honesty, and so forth the ultimate values without any further discussion?….For many, what Sommers is doing is just old-fashioned moralizing…” (p. 489). What does Rosenstand mean by “moralizing”? Explain your understanding of Sommers’s repudiation of moral and ethical relativism. Is her view convincing enough to make a relativist change her stripes? How does Sommers’s view connect up with virtue ethics? [Note: You can get a quick survey of Sommers’s viewpoint in brief video commentaries here:  https://www.aei.org/scholar/christina-hoff-sommers/]
