Philosophical Origins of the Concept "Technical Writing."
Strobos, Semon
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v22 n3 p247-57 1992
Collects several examples of technical and creative writing to examine whether the differences which have been assumed to exist between the two genres do in fact exist. Finds that their material causes--the tropes and devices of description--are the same and that their differences and similarities are governed by Aristotle's "final cause" (telos). (SR)
