Rhetorical Criticism and the Rhetoric of Science.
Ceccarelli, Leah
Western Journal of Communication, v65 n3 p314-29 Sum 2001
Considers how scientific texts are resistant to scrutiny by rhetorical critics because of the recalcitrance of nature, the exegetical equality of scientific communication, and the institutionally driven nature of scientific text production. Argues that none of these differences between scientific and public texts bars a rhetorical reading. Acknowledges an issue about the relationship between text and context in rhetorical inquiry. (SG)
