Rhetoric of the Human Sciences

Deirdre N. McCloskey and John S. Nelson, Series Editors

THIS SERIES IS COMPLETE

Original Series Description
Rhetoric of the Human Sciences is a series devoted to the analysis of various disciplines, not as the “sciences” they sometimes claim to be, but as “rhetorics”—that is, as system of belief and practice, each of which has its own characteristic form and structure. Although the authors write from a variety of perspectives, they share a common interest in understanding and criticizing the intellectual, linguistic, and cultural methods of these disciplines. The volumes not only enhance the understanding of the individual fields from which they are written, but—taken together—form a new critical force.
