Making and Unmaking the Prospects for Rhetoric: Selected Papers from the 1996 Rhetoric Society of America Conference

By Theresa Enos; Richard McNabb et al. | Go to book overview

construct subjectivity are not fully resolved. Authority becomes a particularly difficult rhetorical problem in a postpolitical community. The dialectical tension between coherence and hegemony remains to be fully explored.

Such work is crucial to our future, however. The postindustrial world that we have entered promises disorientation as profound as that experienced in the shift from an agrarian to an industrial world a century ago. The postmodern condition defines a need for orientational powers more difficult than experienced in the familiar confines of modernity. The globalization of daily life requires new concepts of community that transcend the nation-state. The globalization of corporate culture voids past arrangements to humanize the excesses of that culture and challenges us to develop new institutions to control new material structures. This is a broad agenda made urgent by the rapid approach of the crisis of public life. The challenge in the new century is to use the prospect of rhetoric to address the possibilities.
