Sample text

Paraphrasing can also serve you in your own writing: you can use the paraphrase to restate a passage in terms your reader will understand more clearly. You can also use paraphrase to interpret difficult concepts and to make obvious and explicit facts and ideas that are only implied in the original. You will need to paraphrase when you want to take precise notes of your reading and when you wish to mention another writer's exact ideas in your own research papers. Whenever you do paraphrase another's ideas, you must give specific credit through some form of documentation (see Chapter 11).

Chapter 3 Paraphrasing: The Author's Thoughts in Your Words Another area where it is essential for professionals to develop a shared understanding of important texts is the law. Many legal books attempt to clarify exactly what particular laws say and, consequently, how they should be applied in particular circumstances. If there were not some agreement over the meaning of laws, our system of government would collapse. However, laws as originally phrased frequently have ambiguous or unspecific meanings, which leave unclear how they should be applied to a particular case.

Curiosity and desire for knowledge are strong human motives, but we also have an opposite tendency to “stick by our guns” and defend the viewpoints we have already come to believe in. We resist hearing—llet alone adopting—any new viewpoint or explanation. These conserving instincts underlie our positive sense of integrity (as in integer, “maintaining wholeness”). But they also work to spare us the effort of dealing with too many challenges. If we know or care little about a subject, hearing something new about it will not disturb us, but if we have made up our minds and hearts, new ideas are a serious threat to our peace of mind.
