From 1940 to 1942 Vichy France, collaborating with their Nazi occupiers, sent Jews to camps in Germany and executed members of the French Resistance. But the Vichy regime also arrested more than two thousand German spies and executed several dozen of them. This contradictory state of affairs is a previously untold chapter in the history of World War II and the gripping subject of The Hunt for Nazi Spies: Fighting Espionage in Vichy France by Simon Kitson. Embrace complexity in the new year with our free e-book for January, The Hunt for Nazi Spies.

 

Updating of the Burkean Pentad, from Ken McAllister


Submitted by syntaxfactory on December 14, 2014 - 5:17pm


I find Ken McAllister's updating of the Burkean pentad powerful today.
See: http://kairos.technorhetoric.net/10.2/reviews/moeller_moberley/grammar.html

Reminiscent of Kenneth Burke's Pentad, McAllister's grammar is composed of five interrelated elements that, when combined in various ratios, "give substance to the underlying and sometimes ephemeral dialectical struggles they describe" (44).

McAllister's grammar of gamework is composed of the following five elements:
1. agents,
2. functions,
3. influences,
4. manifestations,
5. transformative locales.
