Thinking Radically

Thinking Radically

When you are right, you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative. -Martin Luther King, Jr.

Radical thinking results in experimentation beyond the norms set by society. Radical thinking results in the invention of ideas beyond our wildest thinking. To think radically you must transcend the conventional, even reform conventional thinking.

For this essay first, choose a topic to write about. Then let your topic invite you into its realm. Become that topic, idea, piece of art, that skyscraper, landscape, poem, or song. Live it. Breathe it. Understand its every nuance. Explore its exterior and interior. Love its faults. Adore its strengths. Then, determine what you might write about it. Communicate to your audience that which you have come to know better than yourself. Let your imagination soar to its highest. Release your inner voice.

To accomplish this remember that throughout this course you have learned and applied ways to communicate about yourself and your world by observation, analysis, argument, evaluation, exploration, and research. Try to think radically as you stir together all of the skills you have learned in this course to examine your topic. Try new approaches as the students in the coffee shop do in their collaborative writing. Try new ways of thinking as you explore a topic inside out and upside down. Try to examine all the dimensions of your topic to come up with a compelling, radical, different, and extreme argument. Finally, appropriate word choice, rhythm, repetition, sentence structure, and the tempo of your language all contribute to voice in writing. All writers have distinctive voices, an inherent quality of the individual writer’s style, talent, and vision.
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. – Arthur C. Clarke
