Description

"As the first postmodern discussion of the relation of rhetoric and time, Metzger’s book examines rhetoric as it is, breaking new ground as a study of Aristotle’s notion of faculty (dunamis), of Lacanian rhetoric, and of the relation of rhetoric and geometry as it does so. It is a book for all theorists (particularly poststructuralist theorists and others eager to know more about Lacan), Lacanians who have ignored Lacan’s relevance to rhetoric, and historians critical of the division, in modern rhetorical studies, between theory and history."
