Explores relationships between classical and contemporary approaches to rhetoric and their connection to the underlying assumptions at work in Zen Buddhism.



Book News
McPhail (communications, U. of Utah) first takes a new look at the relationship between Zen Buddhism and rhetoric, then examines the epistemological assumptions shared by pre-classical and postmodern rhetorics and Buddhist metaphysics. He finds that the concept of rhetoric articulated by the Greek Sophists parallels both the questioning of duality posed by Zen thinkers and the critique of negation advanced by some postmodern theorists.
