Arguing over Texts

The Rhetoric of Interpretation

Martin Camper

  • The first modern attempt to recover and adapt the interpretive stases from the ancient Greco-Roman tradition for the purpose of analyzing debates over the meaning of texts
  • Offers a descriptive framework for rhetorically analyzing how people use argument to persuade audiences to adopt or reject particular interpretations of texts in virtually any context including law, politics, religion, history, and literary criticism
  • Contains a variety of striking examples of interpretive debates from the areas of law, politics, religion, history, and literary criticism, many concerning important figures or works from American history
