Romancing the Difference examines the rhetoric of fundamentalism as seen through the lens of Bob Jones University. Highlighting the romantic language used by religious separatists, Lewis argues that fundamentalism is not the angry cry of an outsider, nor is it the mocking of secular culture. Instead, it is an attempt to embody and articulate things that are lovely in order to woo others to an entirely different kind of life.

Her experience in changing gender is reflected in this new edition, but the message remains the same--economics needs to move away from metaphoric rhetoric aimed at persuasion and get back to the science of facts.

In The "Ethos" of Rhetoric, fourteen noted rhetorical theorists and critics answer a summons to return ethics from abstraction to the particular. They discuss and explore a meaning of ethos that predates its more familiar translation as "moral character" and "ethics." Attentive to this more primordial meaning of the term, the contributors understand the phrase "the ethos of rhetoric" to relate to the way discourse is used to transform space and time into "dwelling places" where people can deliberate about and collectively understand some matter of interest. Such dwelling places define the grou

What isnt science? And who draws the line between them? These are rhetorical concerns, as Charles A. Taylor demonstrates in this ambitious book about the theoretical and cultural underpinnings of scientific practice. By showing how boundaries between science and nonscience are rhetorically constructed and socially enforced, Defining Science reveals the political and philosophical significance of such di
