More Methodological Matters: Against Negative Argumentation.
Barton, Ellen
College Composition and Communication, v51 n3 p399-416 Feb 2000
Argues against the use of negative arguments about methodological approaches in the field of composition. Suggests negative argumentation exacerbates the tension concerning the place and value of empirical studies in research; it potentially limits the field's ability to ask certain kinds of research questions; and it risks impoverishing the methodological education offered to new practitioners in the field.
