Landmark Essays on Rhetoric of Science: Theories, Themes, and Methods - Landmark Essays Series (Paperback)Randy Allen Harris (editor)
- Coming soon
Landmark Essays in Rhetoric of Science: Theories, Themes, and Methods is a companion to the successful Landmark Essays in Rhetoric of Science: Case Studies volume. Whereas the case studies volume looked at the production of science somewhat neutrally as objects of study, Theories, Themes, and Methods contains works that covers the relation of rhetoric to truth and knowing, and the importance of understanding science not as a privileged, autonomous, sacrosanct enterprise, but as a set of value-saturated, profoundly influential rhetorical practices. It also contains essays that deal with rhetorical instruments and approaches for studying science, a hybrid of the theoretical and the particular. The selected authors mostly comprise Who's who of the field (Celeste Condit, Jeanne Fahnestock, Alan Gross, Carolyn Miller, Herb Simons), with a few second-generation stars (Leah Ceccarelli, Nathan Crick, J. Blake Scott).
