The Ethics of Argument: Rereading Kairos and Making Sense in a Timely Fashion
Harker, Michael
College Composition and Communication, v59 n1 p77-97 Sep 2007
This study challenges the prevailing interpretations of the Greek rhetorical principle of "kairos"--"saying the right thing at the right time"--and attempts to draw on a more nuanced understanding of the term in order to provide generative re-readings of three Braddock Award-winning essays. (Contains 6 notes and 2 figures.)
