5 ideas for choosing brilliant topics for argument essays


Consider the idea that people should never be ashamed to admit that they were wrong because in being wrong they have at least learned something that can help make them smarter. Alexander Pope is credited with the idea that men are all the wiser for making mistakes. Write about whether people do in fact learn more from their mistakes compared to their successes. Plan out a response and present your argument in a clear fashion supported by adequate evidence.

Consider the idea presented by Don Marquis that what man considers civilization always results in a desert. Man uses up what the earth has to offer and each subsequent generation wastes a bit more of the earth than the last. Write about whether people have been made sufficiently aware of the environment so as to repair it and conserve it or whether we are still on the path to damaging the earth beyond repair. Plan out a response and present your argument in a clear fashion supported by adequate evidence.

Consider the idea of Georges Clemenceau that men who wait to believe in their action before they act are not really people of action. They need to act in order to breathe. Write about whether it is better to act instinctively to a crisis or to be careful and slowly consider your response. Plan out a response and present your argument in a clear fashion supported by adequate evidence.

Consider the idea of one Oscar Wilde that the only thing you can do with good advice is to give it to someone else; never use it yourself. Write about whether it is true that when we need advice the most we are never willing to listen to it. Conversely analyze whether good advice is always a welcomed thing. Plan out a response and present your argument in a clear fashion supported by adequate evidence.

Consider that George Bernard Shaw stated that independence was a fallacy and that every person on earth is dependent upon each other. Today there may in fact be too much focus on the idea of independence. Too much dependence is just as bad as too much independence. Write about whether people are too afraid today to admit that they need others in their life and whether we emphasis being self-reliant too much. Plan out a response and present your argument in a clear fashion supported by adequate evidence.
