The methods of development we study in this chapter involve two subjects (occasionally more than two). Analogy is a special kind of comparison in which a subject of secondary importance and often of a quite different nature is introduced to clarify or justify some aspect of the main subject. Comparison treats two subjects of the same nature, as does contrast; but the former shows how the subjects are alike, while the latter focuses on how they differ. But despite this difference, comparison and contrast work in the same way, and we consider them together, putting off analogy until the end of the chapter.
