After Plato

Publisher: Utah State University Press Release date: 2020-07-01

Description

After Plato redefines the relationships of rhetoric for scholars, teachers, and students of rhetoric and writing in the twenty-first century. Featuring essays by some of the most accomplished scholars in the field, the book explores the diversity of ethical perspectives animating contemporary writing studies-including feminist, postmodern, transnational, non-Western, and virtue ethics-and examines the place of ethics in writing classrooms, writing centers, writing across the curriculum programs, prison education classes, and other settings.When truth is subverted, reason is mocked, racism is promoted, and nationalism takes center stage, teachers and scholars of writing are challenged to articulate the place of rhetorical ethics in the writing classroom and throughout the field more broadly. After Plato demonstrates the integral place of ethics in writing studies and provides a roadmap for future conversations about ethical rhetoric that will play an essential role in the vitality of the field.Contributors: Fred Antczak, Patrick W.
