    The Absence of Rhetorical Theory in Richard Rorty's Linguistic Pragmatism.Robert Danisch - 2013 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 46 (2):156-181.
    In 1967 Richard Rorty edited an anthology of philosophy papers called The Linguistic Turn. This book was supposed to "provide material for reflection on the most recent philosophical revolution, that of linguistic philosophy" (2). Rorty contends in the introduction that the "history of philosophy is punctuated by revolts against the practices of previous philosophers" (1). Thus The Linguistic Turn tries to highlight the ways in which philosophical methods and problems were being rethought in terms of language throughout the middle portion (...)

    Rhetorical Structures, Deliberative Ecologies, and the Conditions for Democratic Argumentation.Robert Danisch - forthcoming - Argumentation:1-15.
    John Dewey’s belief in democratic deliberation rested on a “faith in the capacity of human beings for intelligent judgment and action if proper conditions are furnished”. The stipulation of “proper conditions” is an essential feature, then, of participatory democracy, and Dewey spent considerable time concerned with these conditions, especially in The Public and Its Problems. This essay argues that the structures and ecologies within which we live make certain kinds of argumentation possible or likely, and that when we alter those (...)

    Is It Safe to Eat That? Raw Oysters, Risk Assessment and the Rhetoric of Science.Robert Danisch & Jessica Mudry - 2008 - Social Epistemology 22 (2):129 – 143.
    Recently, oysters have been identified by the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) as a risky food to eat because they may or may not contain the pathogenic bacteria Vibrio parahaemolyticus. The USFDA's attempts to manage the risk manifest themselves in a “Quantitative Risk Assessment”, a report that attempts to quantify and predict the number of oyster eaters that will fall ill from Vibrio. In seeking to produce knowledge and eliminate uncertainty, the USFDA, through the use of a discourse of (...)

    William James and the Art of Popular Statement by Paul Stob (Review).Robert Danisch - 2014 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 47 (3):341-345.
    A number of recent essays and books have asked how pragmatism, since its inception, informs questions that are central to the theory and practice of rhetoric and communication. Paul Stob’s book makes a significant contribution to that conversation, not least through a demonstration of the depth of William James’s work as a public lecturer and the ways in which James’s conception of public lecturing shaped his larger intellectual perspectives and commitments. John Dewey often gets most of the attention of rhetorical (...)

  7. Building a Social Democracy: The Promise of Rhetorical Pragmatism.Robert Danisch - 2015 - Lexington Books.
    Building a Social Democracy examines the various types of communication practices that are necessary to build a social democracy.
