For composition instructors caught between traditional theories that emphasize writing skills and newer theories that require entering a political arena on behalf of certain neglected groups of students, Zeppetello (English, Marist College, Poughkeepsie, New York) adapts the thought of Richard Rorty into a pragmatic alternative for the classroom. He considers the essentialist self, which is out there waiting to be discovered and understood; the linguistic self, which is contingent and entirely created by language; and the pragmatic self, both classical and modern, which is contingent on language, which is also in turn contingent.
