Dialectical Rhetoric By Bruce McComiskey


Submitted by syntaxfactory on June 23, 2015 - 6:29pm


Dialectical Rhetoric
By Bruce McComiskey

"What the author proposes here is not found anywhere else, and his development of a third dialectic--that is, an entirely new model for understanding dialectic--well, this is not mere appropriation; this is theory making."

After the Public Turn and Saying and Silence

In Dialectical Rhetoric, Bruce McComiskey argues that the historical conflict between rhetoric and dialectic can be overcome in ways useful to both composition theory and the composition classroom.
