    The Making of Memory: The Politics of Archives, Libraries and Museums in the Construction of National Consciousness.Richard Harvey Brown & Beth Davis-Brown - 1998 - History of the Human Sciences 11 (4):17-32.
    An archive is a repository - that is, a place or space in which materials of historic interest or social significance are stored and ordered. A national archive is the storing and ordering place of the collective memory of that nation or people(s). This article provides a brief his torical/theoretical introduction to the politics of the archive in late capi talist societies and discusses this politics of memory via the performance of ordinary daily activities of librarians and archivists. Some relevant (...)

    Dialectic and Structure in Jean-Paul Sartre and Claude Lévi-Strauss.Richard Harvey Brown - 1979 - Human Studies 2 (1):1-19.
    The things themselves, which only the limited brains of men and animals believe fixed and stationary, have no real existence at all. They are the flashing and sparks of drawn swords, the glow of victory in the conflict of opposing qualities. SummaryThe conflicts between the eristentialism of Jean‐Paul Sartre and the structuralism of Claude Lévi‐Strauss present a privileged site for illuminating larger conflicts in the human studies as a whole. The present paper argues that a method for addressing and perhaps (...)

    Reason, Politics, and the Politics of Truth: How Science is Both Autonomous and Dependent.Richard Harvey Brown & Elizabeth L. Malone - 2004 - Sociological Theory 22 (1):106-122.
    The concept of "science" usually includes commitments to reason, objectivity, and disinterest in the search for truth about the nature of the world. In this view, politics, in the sense of maneuvering to gain power, corrupts both the process and the product of science. However, we show that science is political through and through-in the process of constructing scientific knowledge, in maintaining disciplines, and in being responsive to partisan sponsorship. Nevertheless, the practitioners of both science and politics maintain the boundary (...)

    Social Science as Civic Discourse: Essays on the Invention, Legitimation, and Uses of Social Theory.Richard Harvey Brown - 1989 - University of Chicago Press.
    Richard Harvey Brown's pioneering explorations in the philosophy of social science and the theory of rhetoric reach a culmination in Social Science as Civic Discourse. In his earlier works, he argued for a logic of discovery and explanation in social science by showing that science and art both depend on metaphoric thinking, and he has applied that logic to society as a narrative text in which significant action by moral agents is possible. This new work is at once a philosophical (...)

    New Roles for Rhetoric: From Academic Critique to Civic Affirmation.Richard Harvey Brown - 1997 - Argumentation 11 (1):9-22.
    The classical conception of rhetoric as the method of reasoned political judgment survived into the Renaissance but was reduced to academic critiques of style and "empty" public rhetoric with the rise of modern science and its representationalist theories of language. Recently, however, rhetoric, textuality, and the "linguistic turn" generally, have become central metaphors in the human sciences. This renewed rhetorical perspective not only fosters a critique of positive philosophy and of scientism in public discourse, it also offers affirmative methods by (...)
