about

Opening with an overview of the renewal of interest in rhetoric for inquiries of all kinds, this volume addresses rhetoric in individual disciplines—mathematics, anthropology, psychology, economics, sociology, political science, and history.  Two essays draw from recent literary theory to suggest the contribution of the humanities to the rhetoric of inquiry, and several essays explore communications beyond the academy, particularly in women’s issues, religion, and law.  The final essays speak from the field of communication studies, where the study of rhetoric usually makes its home.
John S. Nelson is professor of political science at the University of Iowa, Allan Megill is professor of history at the University of Virginia, and Donald N. McCloskey is professor of economics and history at the University  of Iowa.

Editorial Reviews

“Evident . . . is a commitment to clear, elegant writing.   The human sciences envisioned by these writers will be enlivened by metaphor, irony and story-telling.”—Times Higher Educational Supplement
