ABOUT THIS BOOK



In nineteen essays illustrating its many aspects, this book offers an argument for what it takes to construct a complete rhetorical education.


The editors take an approach that is pragmatic and pluralistic, based as it is on the assumptions that a rhetorical education is not limited to teaching freshman composition (or any specific writing course) and that the contexts in which such an education occurs are not limited to classrooms. This thought-provoking volume stresses that while a rhetorical education results in the growth of writing skills, its larger goal is to foster critical thinking.
