Crafting Virtue: The Rhetorical Construction of Public Morality.
Condit, Celeste Michelle
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v73 n1 p79-97 Feb 1987
Traces the errant root metaphors that nourish the "privatization" of morality. Defends a theory of public morality and examines an empirical study of race relations in America to illustrate and support this theory. Claims it is preferable to maintain a theory of public rhetoric that recognizes collective discourse as the source of an active public morality. (JD)
