Price Comparison


This groundbreaking collection of essays is one of the first works to reflect directly and systematically on the conceptual and ethical basis for composition studies as a new discipline of written language. Phelps articulates a philosophy of composition generous enough to accommodate all the strands of current work without being overly eclectic—an open framework subject to modification and addition as the field develops. She draws on wide reading in the humanities and social sciences—including cognitive science, linguistics, literary theory, education, philosophy, hermeneutics, rhetoric, and psychology—to define the contribution and place of composition studies within the larger intellectual and cultural community. The book will therefore interest theorists and scholars in a wide variety of fields.
