The Other is defined as the unnoticed, marginalized member of
an audience: the forgotten, the overlooked, the expendable.
Hegemonic factions in hierarchical societies often dismiss or
remain willfully ignorant of the values, beliefs and concerns of
these few (or these many) members of an audience who may, upon
closer inspection, be either direct or indirect stakeholders on the
issue in question. In order for a speaker to gain as rounded (360°)
and well-considered a point of view on his or her topic,
encompassing all facets and aspects in order to gain as full and
understanding a picture of the topic as possible in order to advance
a responsible claim, he or she must extend his or her empathy and
place him or herself in the shoes of the Other.
The Other is not necessarily an enemy or an opponent, but can
be. For example, John F. Kennedys ability to think like the
enemy during the Cold Wars Cuban Missile Crisisto consider
Nikita Khrushchevs interests and how he would need to appear
strong to and save face with his own people without necessarily
desiring to advance nuclear warallowed JFK to avert potential
disaster during a period of international conflict and high tensions.
On a less elevated scale, the interests of the Other can be
associated with the minority in a democracy or, in general, the
weak (in terms of power, not will), the distant, the voiceless, the
silenced, the uneducated, the unheard, the remote.
Assignment: In developing a list of the direct and indirect
stakeholders on your chosen international social justice topic,
determine which audience members appear to lie most along the
topics margins. Which peopleand their interestsmay easily be
overlooked, willfully or unintentionally? For which audience
members is it most difficult to imagine their points of view, i.e.
hypothetically construct the reasons for which they believe their
own claims to be true? Whom is it hardest to relate to and identify
In this sense, your research task consists almost of an element of
reportage, both from the field and from print and online sources.
How do people relate to such estranged or alien fellow human
beings, and how do connections forge the possibility for this
transaction of knowledge to take place?
Choose a member of the audience who could be construed (given
your particular topic) as the Other. This choice may or may not
be the same stakeholder you have selected for your Group
Symposium individual presentation. Make an explicit claim for this
specific identification of the Other. Place yourself in the shoes of
this Other and take the position(s) of this Other in regard to
your chosen ethical issue and assess the Others rhetorical
situation. Which argument(s) would this Other invent in order to
persuade the rest of the audience in favor of his or her position?
Which available means of persuasion (read: ethos, pathos, logos)
would the Other appeal to? Finally, please assess how you can
incorporate or harmonize the interests of this Other with your
position, incorporating and concerning yourself with his or her
concernsadopting, compromising, adjusting, tweakingwhile at
the same time preserving your persuasive
argument intact? Did a contemplation of this specific Other
influence or succeed in moving you at all in your position? How
so, or why not?
Evaluation: The instructor will judge 1) the specificity with which
you defend your classification of the Other as he or she (or they)
pertain(s) to your topic; 2) the degree to which you convincingly
empathize with the position of the Other and, with some degree
of accuracy, approximate the arguments that particular Other
might make on your ethical issue; and 3) through conscious
acknowledgment of and exposure to the Others arguments, the
consideration or full account the opinions of that Other in
formulating your potentially new position in order to move
forward with a more responsible, deeply understanding persuasive
