Critical writing draws together other aspects of critical thinking in order to present a forceful case to readers. This means that it must continue the process of selecting and forming judgements about the evidence. However, the writing must be produced with its eventual readers in mind. This chapter considers the characteristics of critical, analytical writing from the perspective of writing text, as opposed to considering written arguments from the reader’s point of view. As well as looking at general characteristics, it focuses on the language used to present written arguments. Previous chapters emphasised the importance of developing a clear line of reasoning.
