Critical Sub/Versions of the History of Philosophical Rhetoric.
Vitanza, Victor J.
Rhetoric Review, v6 n1 p41-66 Fall 1987
Discusses post-modern literary criticism in terms of a sophistic non-Aristotelian, non-disciplinary rhetorical tradition which may be styled "antibody rhetoric," a complementary remedy to the orthodox philosophical, metadisciplinary rhetoric. Envisions this dialectic as a longstanding comic/tragic polarity, with the "antibody rhetoric" enhancing toleration of the incommensurabilities of post-modern knowledge. (JG)
