Rhetoric of the Network: Toward a New Metaphor
Abstract

Abstract:

The “network” has become a dominant metaphor in contemporary thought. By analyzing its history, this essay argues that this metaphor has evolved through re-projection, and that several literary texts also suggest that an imminent paradigm shift may address longstanding interdisciplinary concerns with the network-concept’s adequacy.
