Through the Rhetorical Looking-Glass: Consensus Theory and Fairy Tales in the Epistemology of Communication--A Reply to Bineham.
Hikins, James W.
Communication Studies, v40 n3 p161-71 Fall 1989
Considers issues in rhetorical epistemology whose significance transcends religious communication and commitment. Examines consensus-based epistemology as a model for understanding religious belief. Discusses the implications of Jeffery Bineham's position for rhetorical criticism (presented in a previous article in this issue) as well as the adequacy of consensus doctrine for illuminating all forms of discursive activity.
