Briefly summarize Conardâ€™s and Wallaceâ€™s arguments about the relationship between education, the self, and society. Are their ways that they use rhetoric(persuasive language) in similar or dissimilar ways? What do you notice so far about the larger conversation about the value of education and its relationship to work? Where and why are these authors converging with (and diverging from) one another?
Conard, Edward. â€œWe donâ€™t need more humanities majors.â€
Wallace, David Foster. â€œThis is Water.â€ Kenyon College, Ohio. 21 May 2005. Address.
