Current Rhetorical and Critical theory for the most part separates writing from consciousness and presumes relative truth to be the only possible expressive goal for rhetoric. These presumptions are reflected in our tradition of persuasive rhetoric, which values writing that successfully argues one person's belief at the expense of another's. In this book, Barbara Couture presents a case for a phenomenological rhetoric, one that values and respects consciousness and selfhood and that restores to rhetoric the possibility of seeking an all-embracing truth through pacific and cooperative interaction.

She attempts to rescue truth, rhetoric, and writing from what she sees as the debilitating effects of postmodernism, especially postmodernist preoccupations with relativism and skepticism."-- Thomas Kent, author of "Paralogic Rhetoric: A Theory of Communicative Interaction
