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.

From the Back Cover:

Drawing on wide reading in cognitive science, linguistics, literary theory, education, philosophy, hermeneutics, rhetoric, and psychology, Phelps arrives at a new conception of composition as a discipline linked to many sciences and humanities rather than merely a branch of literary studies; and further defines its link to the broader cultural themes of rhetoric, writing, praxis, and context.

About the Author:

Louise Wetherbee Phelps is at Syracuse University.
