How to use nuance in a sentence?

  1. Brian Crowley:

  2. Dean Acheson:

We are in a national moment where rough justice stands in place of careful analysis, nuance and due process.

  4. Joanna Schroeder:

  5. William McCants:

    The President is not known for nuance, which is what a speech like this requires to escape the potential wrath of his multiple audiences.
