The evolutionary nature of what is called the New Rhetorics both sustains and hinders rhetoric as a discipline. This original collection aims to locate and extend the various perceptions of the New Rhetorics in order to fully apply their richness and utility to composition studies and related disciplines. The contributors have provided a wide-ranging overview of contemporary rhetoric including perceptions of rhetoric as they pertain to argument, metaphor, ethics, philosophy, science, technology, linguistics, gender, cognitive studies, culture and literary theory.
