Reflections of Rhetoric, Culture and Human Survival
by Philip C. Wander
This book confronts growing concern about the quality of our civic discourse, the problems we do and do not take up as a people and as human beings. The most important being the survival of the planet. To get at such issues requires not only new approaches to criticism, but also a more profound sense of what it means to be a critic. Topics range from the L in scholarship, strategies for re-humanizing dehumanized people, politics in poetry and philosophy, 9/11 and the global reality in the 21st century.
