LAS 432 WEEK 1 DISCUSSION 1 The Role of a Thesis
The Role of a Thesis
A thesis statement plays an important role in the research process. Baase states in her prologue that “Computer technology is the most significant new technology since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution.” In doing so, she had to back up this argument with solid scholarly research. To evaluate the strength of her argument, consider for a moment whether she accomplished this goal. How did she do in convincing you of her claim? What were the arguments she used to support her point within Week 1's reading? Were they enough to convince you that she was right in stating this?
How does Baase’s point align with the assertion in the lesson that we are now living in a third great technological transformation called the knowledge revolution? Have computers truly changed our lives so much that we can call this a revolution like the Industrial Revolution of the 18th century?
What impact, either positive or negative, has this had on society as a whole?
