Humanistic Invention in Expressive Discourse.
Snipes, Wilson Currin
The humanistic value of expressive discourse should form the basis for reinstating composition in the curricula of higher education. Educators must realize that the process of thinking that goes on before an assertion or statement of purpose is written is related to the familiar prewriting concept; that approaches to invention are as various as composers; that, although artificial models do serve composers, honest introspection is generative in itself; that the "languaging" of invention offers a vehicle for discovery; and that humanity forms the centrality of expressive discourse.
