What Others Have Said
RHETORIC AND INCOMMENSURABILITY should attract attention from almost anyone interested in rhetoric. The incommensurability issue has implications that encompass all flavors of rhetoric, and the book seems well designed both to engage the rhetoric of science specialists and the more general audience of rhetoricians.
-Michael C. Leff, editor of Rhetoric and Pedagogy: Its History, Philosophy, and Practice and NCA Distinguished Scholar
RHETORIC AND INCOMMENSURABILITY will be of interest to rhetoricians, students of scientific rhetoric, and a range of scholars in various arenas of science studies. It will also be of interest to philosophers of science, and to philosophers interested in rhetoric. It will make an important interdisciplinary contribution to the study of incommensurability.
-Harvey Siegel, author of Relativism Refuted: A Critique of Contemporary Epistemological Relativism and Rationality and Judgment
