Fragments of Rationality

Postmodernity and the Subject of Composition

A well written and important book, as relevant to the field of professional communication as to the broader field of composition.
Technical Communication Quarterly

In an insightful assessment of the study and teaching of writing against the larger theoretical, political, and technological upheavals of the past thirty years, Fragments of Rationality questions why composition studies has been less affected by postmodern theory than other humanities and social science disciplines.
