Abstract:

RHETORICAL FIGURES IN SCIENCE breaks new ground in the rhetorical
study of scientific argument as the first book to demonstrate how
figures of speech other than metaphor have been used to accomplish key
conceptual moves in scientific texts. Examples, both verbal and
visual, range across disciplines and centuries to reaffirm the
positive value of these once widely-taught devices.

"While many books deliver less than they promise, a few, like
RHETORICAL FIGURES IN SCIENCE, deliver more.  In a well-crafted
argument and a well-exemplified series of chapters, Fahnestock
undermines our comfortable sense that, aside from metaphor, the
figures can be safely ignored by rhetorical theorists and critics,
that the study of such schemes as antithesis, incrementum, gradatio,
antimetabole, ploche and polyptoton is the preserve only of
pedants."--Quarterly Journal of Speech
