In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Rhetoric Building on the work of rhetoricians, philosophers, linguists, and theorists in other disciplines, Karen Burke LeFevre challenges a widely held view of rhetorical invention as the act of an atomistic individual. She proposes that invention be viewed as a social act, in which individuals interact dialectically with society and culture in distinctive ways. Even when the primary agent of invention is an individual, invention is pervasively affected by that individual’s relationships to others through language and other socially shared symbol systems.
