The Death of Composition as an Intellectual Discipline.
Olson, Gary A.
Composition Studies, v28 n2 p33-41 Fall 2000
Discusses the author's 1991 conference speech that argued that if postmodern discourse has taught us anything, it is that "rhetoric" is at the center of all knowledge making, even in the sciences. Addresses the future of composition as a discipline and whether scholars in the field will position themselves as "enemies" or as "adversaries" in this struggle. (SC)
