Check out my short paper published in Chapman University’s e-Research: A Journal of Undergraduate Work:
The paper was originally a final essay for the course English-307: Foundations of Rhetorical Studies taught by Doug Sweet. Unfortunately they left out the question prompt that the paper was a response to. I’ve pasted the prompt here. It should shed some light on why in the second paragraph I say: “If the quotation from Richard Tarnas is our understanding of the world…”
Question Prompt: “The world does not exist as a thing-in-itself, independent of interpretation; rather, it comes into being only in and through interpretations. The subject of knowledge is already embedded in the object of knowledge: the human mind never stands outside the world, judging it from an external vantage point” (Tarnas 397). In a couple pages, tell us how this postmodern attitude could mean a return to Rhetoric: what does that mean?
