Hierarchical organization "is the paradigm for scholarly and
scientific as well as business and technical writing. A scholarly essay
should lead the reader step-by-step through its argument, making clear how
each piece of evidence is relevant. The backbone of a technical report should
be a careful outline of topics. Such an outline not only shows how each
piece fits, but also directs the reader through its parts. Whether we are
told to write deductively or inductively, the result is supposed to be a
hierarchy of ideas and a carefully controlled reading." (Jay
David Bolter Writing Space: a hypertext).
