    Postconstructivisms and the Promise of Peircean Rhetoric.Peter Simonson - 2023 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 56 (3-4):215-241.
    ABSTRACT This article makes a case for the contemporary relevance of Charles Sanders Peirce’s conception of rhetoric and its further fulfillment through biosemiotics and pragmatist-inflected physiological feminisms. It situates itself in an era when rhetoric is undergoing conceptual change, with the social constructivism that guided much thinking since the 1970s supplanted in part by a family of postconstructivisms. In conversation with new materialist, affective, and biological strands of rhetorical theory, the article maps questions and risks involved in developing newer conceptions (...)

    Bioethics and the Rituals of Media.Peter Simonson - 2002 - Hastings Center Report 32 (1):32-39.
    Popular media may make short shrift of complex ideas and moral deliberations, but it can also serve bioethics well. Bioethics should embrace the ritual function of the media in bringing issues to public attention and in reinforcing bioethics as a field.

    Some foundational conceptions of communication: Revising and expanding the traditions of thought.Peter Simonson, Leonarda García-Jiménez, Johan Siebers & Robert T. Craig - 2012 - Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of Communication 4 (1):73-92.
    This work presents and defines three meanings of communication taking into account some of the traditions of thought that founded our field of study. These three conceptions are: communication as an architectonic art; communication as a social force; and communication as the encounter with truth. These three conceptions are considered with regard to several traditions of thought conceptualized in Craig’s (1999) constitutive metamodel of communication theory (rhetorical, sociopsychological, critical and phenomenological). Furthermore, the discussion expands the traditions of thought, adding American (...)

    The Short History of Rhetorical Theory.Peter Simonson - 2020 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 53 (1):75-88.
    We’re in the midst of a wave of efforts to historicize and localize theory. One stream, oriented toward a global social imaginary, has sought to “ provincialize Europe,” in Dipesh Chakrabarty’s resonant trope. This means provincializing Euro-American social theory and situating it within a particular geopolitical formation—a contextualizing project that opens space to center what the Comaroffs call “theory from the South” and other regional or indigenous loci of orientation. Another stream situates itself more comfortably within Western traditions of theory (...)
