POROI Journal's latest issue
POROI 15.2 celebrates the 45th anniversary of the founding of the Project on Rhetoric of Inquiry by presenting two distinguished contributions. Carolyn Miller, North Carolina State emerita, and Molly Hartzog, Frostburg State, Maryland, give a virtuoso display of visual rhetorical analysis with a thorough analysis of the tree diagrams that have long been used to represent life’s diversity. Deirdre McCloskey, one of POROI’s founders, then engages in a colloquy with eight interlocutors on rhetoric, dialectic, and dogmatism at the troubled boundary between economics, politics, and logic. POROI’s writ remains today what it was in 1985: to press the case for the rhetorical dimensions of discourse in the arts, sciences, and professions.
