Paragraphs and Propositions

Research output: Other contributionNet publication - Internet publicationCommunication


Inspired by by Wayne Booth (co-author of The Craft of Research) and Oliver Senior (author of How to Draw Hands), Thomas Basbøll argues that composition is the coordination of words and ideas, paragraphs and propositions, sentences and the state of things. As such, paragraphs in academic writing form a particular picture of ‘the facts’ in order for which to make sense, potential readers must be able to imagine.
