Description:
Pittsburgh, PA, U.S.A.: University of Pittsburgh Press, 1992. Trade Paperback. Very Good. This collection of essays traces the attempts of a writing teacher, over a ten year period, to understand theoretically what happens when students from diverse backgrounds learn to use academic language in college writing courses; her original assumption, based on the work of Paulo Freire, was that students could be inculcated with critical consciousness, an awareness of the injustices of social inequality, through teaching them academic discourse; over time she became increasingly skeptical about the politically liberating effects of academic discourse and concludes by calling for a theory of discourse that recognizes the need to argue for values and a pedagogy that can assist these arguments (blue cover with white lettering, in nearly perfect conditon except for previous owner's embossed stamp on half-title page)

New York , NY, U.S.A.: Routledge, 1994. Trade Paperback. As New. This book examines the textual complexity of all of Smith's major works by analyzing their stylistic, figurative, and rhetorical features and by reading them in the context of Enlightenment discourse on the moral, legal, political, and economic aspects of society; rather than seeing Smith's writings as promoting the values of an emerging commercial society, this reading emphasizes their ambivalences; of central importance for the structure of Smith's discourse is Stoic moral philosophy, which provides a set of values antithetical to both classical republican virtues and the aspirations of an acquisitive commercial society

New York , NY, U.S.A.: St. Martin's Press, 1990. Reprint. Trade Paperback. Near Fine. This book takes issue with the major themes of postmodernism; it challenges the idealist irrationalism of post-structuralism, questions the existence of any radical break separating allegedly postmodern from modern art, and denies that recent socio-economic developments represent a fundamental shift from classical patterns of capital accumulation, and also takes issue with some critics of postmodernism, such as Habermas and Jameson; it views postmodernism as a symptom of political frustration and social mobility rather than a significant intellectual or cultural phenomenon, reflecting the disappointment of the generation of 1968 and the incorporation of many of its members into the new professional and managerial middle class (light blue cover with black lettering, a bright, clean, tight copy)
