The Mission of Contemporary Rhetoric: A Taxonomic Perspective.
Skopec, Eric Wm.
Arguing for a "taxonomic approach" to the determination of the meaning of "rhetoric," this paper first indicates the need for renewed speculation about the ordering of knowledge as a whole. It then indicates the importance of general taxonomies for understanding rhetoric, illustrates its position with a pair of modern taxonomies, and concludes by suggesting some criteria for such taxonomies.
