Using ethnographic-type data, Graves (Depaul U.) explores the role of the rhetoric in scientific inquiry. Coverage includes an overview of science history and how the scientific method appropriated rhetorical invention theory during the rise of science; the role of analogy in the process of interpreting data in a scientific experiment; the nature of some scientific theories as evidenced through analysis of the metaphors on which they are constructed; an examination of the way that the trope of metonymy plays a role in how physicists have perceived the existence of their experimental data; and the implications for research in the rhetoric of science and also the teaching of writing in composition and in technical and scientific writing.

Book Description Hampton Press, United States, 2005. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This book examines the role that rhetoric plays in the creation and conceptualization of new knowledge claims. It looks at scientists in the act of conducting research, interpreting data, and constructing accounts of an experiment and highlights how they worked with the linguistic resources available to them to bring into existence abstract concepts and gain new insight into the subject of their study. The book addresses some of the big questions about the epistemic and ontological status of rhetoric in the context of ongoing scientific inquiry. The book concludes with an examination of the implications of this research for the teaching of writing, especially focusing on the role that specialists play in modeling effective writing in their disciplines.
