Essays in Persuasion, by John Maynard Keynes

18 Jan 2017 21:24 | Author: silverostrich848 | Category: Vorwort zur dissertation

Here are collected the croakings of twelve years the croakings of a Cassandra who could never influence the course of events in time. The volume might have been entitled "Essays in Prophecy and Persuasion," for the Prophecy , unfortunately, has been more successful than the Persuasion. But it was in a spirit of persuasion that most of these essays were written, in an attempt to influence opinion. They were regarded at the time, many of them, as extreme and reckless utterances. But I think that the reader, looking through them to-day, will admit that this was because they often ran directly counter to the overwhelming weight of contemporary sentiment and opinion, and not because of their character in themselves. On the contrary, I feel reading them again, though I am a prejudiced witness that they contain more understatement than overstatement, as judged by after-events. That this should be their tendency, is a natural consequence of the circumstances in which they were written. For I wrote many of these essays painfully conscious that a cloud of witnesses would rise up against me and very few in my support, and that I must, therefore, be at great pains to say nothing which I could not substantiate. I was constantly on my guard as I well remember, looking back to be as moderate as my convictions and the argument would permit.

[1] I still stand substantially by the Positive Suggestions for the Future Regulation of Money , which I wrote in 1923 before our Return to the Gold Standard and which are here reprinted (p. 213) as the third Essay of Book III. Whilst we were on the Gold Standard, these proposals were necessarily in abeyance. But any one who wishes to know the general outline of how the author would settle our currency Problem, as it presents itself to-day, will find it in this essay.

    But perhaps it is only in England (and America) that it is possible to be so unconscious. In continental Europe the earth heaves and no one but is aware of the rumblings. There it is not just a matter of extravagance or "labour troubles"; but of life and death, of starvation and existence, and of the fearful convulsions of a dying civilisation.

    Persuasion essays are a bit like argument essays , but they tend to be a little kinder and gentler. Argument essays require that you discuss and attack an alternate view, while persuasive essays are often more like attempts to convince the reader that you have a believable argument.

    Consider prompt number 26 from the list below (cell phones should never be used while driving). You could explain in a persuasive tone - based on statistical data - that drivers using cell phones when driving led to 1 in every 4 crashes in 2014 (according to the  National Safety Council ).

    So what is the truth about the Crusades? Scholars are still working some of that out. But much can already be said with certainty. For starters, the Crusades to the East were in every way defensive wars. They were a direct response to Muslim aggression an attempt to turn back or defend against Muslim conquests of Christian lands.

    That is what gave birth to the Crusades. They were not the brainchild of an ambitious pope or rapacious knights but a response to more than four centuries of conquests in which Muslims had already captured two-thirds of the old Christian world. At some point, Christianity as a faith and a culture had to defend itself or be subsumed by Islam. The Crusades were that defense.
