Online Bibliography and Literature Review Guides
What is an analytical argument?
1. Analysis seeks to discover what something means. An analytical argument makes claims for how something might be best understood and in what context.
2. Analysis deliberately delays evaluation and judgment.
3. Analysis begins in and values uncertainty rather than starting from settled convictions.
4. Analytical arguments are usually pluralistic; they tend to try on more than one way of thinking about how something might be best understood.
from Writing Analytically, by David Rosenwasser and Jill Stephen (Wadsworth 2012)
