This volume provides thoughtful answers to a surprisingly large number of significant questions in the rhetoric of science and in rhetorical theory generally. It will have a wide readership because of its topical interest, its attention to basic theoretical issues, and its presentation of high quality academic debate. Robert Hariman, Drake University
...an extraordinary book. The engagement is consistent throughout the volume. Unlike most anthologies, there is no issue of continuity in this one. It contains treatments of the field s most central issues and has a group of well-known authors who, in fact, have helped to define the field. I know of no book that approaches an engagement at this level. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to read it. Michael J. Shapiro, University of Hawaii
Rhetorical Hermeneutics is a fascinating collection of essays the discussion becomes dynamic, invigorating, challenging, as each contributor impacts upon the work of the others around her/him The result is exciting. H-Net Reviews (H-Rhetor)
"The essay by Gaonkar has forced rhetorical scholars to reexamine the history and future of their discipline in the wake of postmodernism, and to contemplate the very nature of rhetorical criticism itself, not just in a scientific context but in a much wider social-political milieu. This text most certainly will stir up an already volatile debate."-- Ken Zagacki, Louisiana State University"

From the Back Cover
Starting from the work of John Angus Campbell, Alan Gross, and Lawrence Prelli on the rhetoric of science, Gaonkar broadens his critique to fundamental issues for any rhetorical theory and develops four questions that cut to the heart of the possibility of a postmodern rhetoric.
