Writers should use the model “entering the conversation” in their writing. This allows you to listen to what people are really saying and from there you are giving them a sense of what you think in response to what they’re saying. You have to hold out against giving your own point of view until you have constructed what type of discussion is going on.
I disagree that looking at artwork can help you analyze other situations because art is in the eye of the beholder. Everyone will have their own interpretation which may lead to conflict. Some could view an art piece as superior, ethical, moral or beautiful and some may look at that same art piece and be in disgust, anger or dismay. That conflict can be destructive and cause poor attitudes towards people who disagree with each other’s interpretations of that very same art piece.
