The Challenge of Avant-Garde Argument.
Chase, Kenneth R.
Argumentation and Advocacy, v29 n1 p16-31 Sum 1992
Suggests that the reverberation of avant-garde's question (What is argument?) frees the movement of thought from existing boundaries and reveals that present practices and studies of argument are merely institutional or traditional channels for thought. Proposes that critics of avant-garde argument undermine prevailing academic commitment to see argument as a sure foundation for human progress. (RS)
