The second in a two-volume set/ A Theory of Literate Action draws on work from the social sciences—and in particular sociocultural psychology/ phenomenological sociology/ and the pragmatic tradition of social science—to "reconceive rhetoric fundamentally around the problems of written communication rather than around rhetoric's founding concerns of high stakes/ agonistic/ oral public persuasion" (p. 3). An expression of more than a quarter-century of reflection and scholarly inquiry/ this volume represents a significant contribution to contemporary rhetorical theory.
