  • The Open Handby Barry M. Kroll

    Utah State University Press 2013; US$ 20.00

    Based on five years of classroom experimentation, The Open Hand presents a highly practical yet transformational philosophy of teaching argumentative writing. In his course Arguing as an Art of Peace, Barry Kroll uses the open hand to represent an alternative approach to argument, asking students to argue in a way that promotes harmony rather than... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 27.95

    This volume presents a representative cross-section of the more than 200 papers presented at the 1994 conference of the Rhetoric Society of America.

Exploring... more...

  • Fundamentals of Argumentation Theoryby Frans H. van Eemeren; Rob Grootendorst; Ralph H. Johnson; Christian Plantin; Charles A. Willard

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 81.95

    Argumentation theory is a distinctly multidisciplinary field of inquiry. It draws its data, assumptions, and methods from disciplines as disparate as formal logic and discourse analysis, linguistics and forensic science, philosophy and psychology, political science and education, sociology and law, and rhetoric and artificial intelligence. This presents... more...

  • Coalescent Argumentationby Michael A. Gilbert

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 35.95

    Coalescent Argumentation is based on the concept that arguments can function from agreement, rather than disagreement. To prove this idea, Gilbert first discusses how several components--emotional, visceral (physical) and kisceral (intuitive) are utilized in an argumentative setting by people everyday. These components, also characterized as "modes,"... more...

  • Word Bytesby Carolyne Lee

    Melbourne University Press 2009; US$ 33.32

    Words matter. And good writing matters. Especially in the information society, in which more writing than ever is disseminated and read. There may be a lot of dross out there, but we can also find writing that stands out from the rest. It lodges in our heads because of its simplicity and style, and because it says something worth reading. This is... more...

  • Rhetoric and the Arts of Designby David S. Kaufer; Brian S. Butler

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 45.95

    The design arts -- from the design of buildings and machines to software and interfaces -- are associated with types of knowledge and performance thought to be structured, modular, and systematic. Such arts have become increasingly prestigious in our technocratic society. Since Aristotle, the art of rhetoric was conceived as a loosely structured "practical"... more...

  • Making and Unmaking the Prospects for Rhetoricby Theresa Jarnagin Enos

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 33.95

    The 1996 Meeting of the Rhetoric Society of America commemorated the 25th anniversary of the publication of Lloyd Bitzer and Edwin Black's The Prospect of Rhetoric. In so doing, the conference gave scholars and teachers in various disciplines from all over the country the opportunity to talk about new prospects for rhetoric. The conferees were asked... more...

  • Conducting Socially Responsible Researchby Omar Swartz

    SAGE Publications 1996; US$ 52.00

    This book redefines our understanding of theory, criticism and pedagogy with the vocabulary of neo-pragmatism. When human knowledge becomes historicized and socialized, the distinctions between our public, academic and instructional personae fade. In place of such traditional personae, a new identity is encouraged for scholars in the field of communication.... more...

  • Metaphor and Metonymy across Time and Culturesby Javier E. Díaz-Vera

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 140.00

    This volume offers new insights into figurative language and its pervasive role as a factor of linguistic change. The case studies included in this book explore some of the different ways new metaphoric and metonymic expressions emerge and spread among speech communities, and how these changes can be related to the need to encode ongoing... more...

  • The Pragmatics of Style (RLE Linguistics B: Grammar)by Leo Hickey

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 120.00

    In the general area of style study or stylistics there is no shortage of ideas, definitions or published works. It is hoped, in the present volume, to contribute to the prosperity of the discipline mainly by clarifying and exemplifying how pragmatic considerations may be relevant to any study of style, in the conviction that pragmastylistics is more... more...
