Dialectical Tensions of Speaking and Silence.
Scott, Robert L.
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v79 n1 p1-18 Feb 1993
Places (in dialogue form) a discussion of the functions of silence with what purports to be an Eastern attitude, specifically that derived from several Chinese texts. Poses in contrast to the Eastern portion a purportedly Western, didactic discussion. Notes that the ancient question of the relationship of rhetoric and dialectic recurs. (RS)
