What is the purpose of an essay?


The basic purpose of writing a paper is to communicate idea, opinions, notions, enquiries, arguments, analyses, information or questions.

What are the different objectives while writing an essay?


The content could be written to achieve any one or more of the following objectives:

  • An objective to inform
  • An objective to persuade
  • An objective to explicate
  • An objective to entertain
  • An objective to illustrate

What is the basic purpose of a cause and effect essay?


A cause and effect will achieve any one of the aforementioned objectives insomuch as explaining the relationship between certain aspects of factors at play in any given situation, and the consequent ramifications as a result of their interaction and play under the given set of conditions.

Typically, cause and effect essays are used in situations when the content of the writing is dealing with a subject matter of considerable complexity. The complexity is made easier to comprehend by the writer by the division of the problem into subsets of causes and their effects.

So, what would one learn from a cause and effect essay?


With the primary purpose of disintegrating an otherwise complex problem or issue into smaller manageable and comprehensible chunk sized packets, the readers would be expected to understand the multiple aspects constituted by the bigger theme or picture.

The structure of logic, remember it, and you shall be golden


You do not have to be logicians to know and understand the operational or building functions of logic. Logic is composed of a predicate and an assumption coupled with the predicate, which lead to a conclusion.

For further explication consider a conclusion to be C, a predicate to be P, and the assumption to be A. Then:

C = P + A (Conclusion = Predicate + Assumptions)

Once you have understood that to reach a conclusion you need to follow the basic function mentioned above, you may then use it in every instance of logic that you use.

Simply speaking, if you make a claim, then you must have two things:


  1. A foundation basis (Predicate)
  2. Some known fact/figure/evidence that illustrates the proof of validity of your predicate (Assumption)

Plato, Aristotle and Socrates are not known for tirades. They are still remembered today because what they had to say made sense. And the reason they made sense if because they talked logically sound stuff, which is valid universally, even today.
