Chapter 5: Maintaining Focus and Purpose: The Body Paragraphs

Body Paragraphs

Body Paragraph 3


Justice defines language as “a method of communication that is available to virtually all humans to use”; a “common property, available to everyone free.” Justice thereby establishes language as a common human right and desire—an inherent need that is obvious even in the simple naming and describing of a “proto-language” like “Me Tarzan, you Jane”: “Once you begin to share information, you are creating a common space of understanding amongst you and your fellow speakers.” Even if that common space is used to express difference—Tarzan is not Jane—it is still a vital tool that ensures even those who do not share opinions, backgrounds, or identities can still share ideas.

Please note: Now we have begun the analysis of the evidence upon which we developed the second storey of our three-storey thesis. Essentially, we will be justifying and enacting our claim here, analyzing evidence to demonstrate how Justice is doing what we claim he is doing. In our outline we established our goal in this paragraph to overlap the contrast of “cooperation” and “conflict” with the repetition of the word “common” by answering what the two pieces of evidence have to do with each other. We have prepared for this paragraph rather nicely with the concluding sentence in Paragraph 2 that first makes this connection. Now we can review our collected information for more evidence to analyze in this paragraph.
