  • Rhetorical Analysis Of TED Talk By Paul Root Wolpe

    When he uses this method, he indirectly conveys to the audience what could possibly happen if genetic engineering is used in humans. He frequently implies that the human genetic pool will be left tainted if we alter our genome and he also states this explicitly at the end of his presentation. Ethos: Wolpe states that he is a bioethicist and the fact that he holds positions as prestigious as the Chief Bioethicist at NASA, and the head of the Genetics Department at Emory University, brings a lot of credibility to him and it means that we can trust what he has to say and his opinions on the issue. His vast experience in bioengineering also credits him with a lot of experience which further adds to his…

    For example, bioengineering is a major subject in Oryx and Crake, specifically gene-splicing. Atwood takes real animals that exist today and creates non-existent animals by mixing two animals and creating new species. Although the idea is very real and this type of science does exist in bioengineering, the reality of it is that there is no such thing in our world today. A good example from the novel is a “rakunk” (a cross between a skunk and a racoon), which is an imaginary species described in…
