Early Engineering Writing Textbooks and the Anthropological Complexity of Disciplinary Discourse.
Hagge, John
Written Communication, v12 n4 p439-91 Oct 1995
Explains that analysis of leading ideas in 20th century engineering writing textbooks and other primary sources demonstrates that disciplinary discourse conventions develop from an intricate nexus of human motivations, beliefs, and social activity. Explores currents in American social and intellectual history that explain this complex view of language, combining rhetorically sensitive formalism with ideas of professional literacy. (PA)
