Academic Writing, Genres and Philosophy
Peters, Michael A.
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v40 n7 p819-831 Dec 2008
This paper examines the underlying genres of philosophy focusing especially on their pedagogical forms to emphasize the materiality and historicity of genres, texts and writing. It focuses briefly on the history of the essay and its relation to the journal within the wider history of scientific communication, and comments on the standardized forms of academic writing and the issue of "bad writing".
