Rhetoric in an Antifoundational World: Language, Culture, and Pedagogy

Rhetoric in an Antifoundational World: Language, Culture, and Pedagogy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this brilliant collection, literary scholars, philosophers, and teachers inquire into the connections between antifoundational philosophy and the rhetorical tradition. What happens to literary studies and theory when traditional philosophical foundations are disavowed? What happens to the study of teaching and writing when antifoundationalism is accepted? What strategies for human understanding are possible when the weaknesses of antifoundationalism are identified? This volume offers answers in classic essays by such thinkers as Richard Rorty, Terry Eagleton, and Stanley Fish, and in many new essays never published before.<P>The contributors to this book explore the nexus of antifoundationalism and rhetoric, critique that nexus, and suggest a number of pedagogical and theoretical alternatives. The editors place these statements into a context that is both critical and evaluative, and they provide for voices that dissent from the antifoundational perspective and that connect specific, practical pedagogies to the broader philosophical statements. For those with an interest in rhetoric, philosophy, comparative literature, or the teaching of composition, this book sets forth a wealth of thought-provoking ideas.<P>"I have nothing but praise for this work — a masterful treatment of the question, What positive intellectual projects are possible within a world that radically questions the existence of philosophical foundations?" — Steven Mailloux, University of California, Irvine
