9780299158149: The Rhetoric of Economics (Rhetoric of the Human Sciences)

In this revised second edition, Deirdre McCloskey demonstrates how economic discourse employs metaphor, authority, symmetry and other rhetorical means of persuasion. "The Rhetoric of Economics" shows economists to be human persuaders and poets of the marketplace, even in their most technical and mathematical moods. It is further enhanced by three new chapters and two new bibliographies.

Book Description University of Wisconsin Press, 1998. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: A classic in its field, this pathbreaking book humanized the scientific rhetoric of economics to reveal its literary soul. "McCloskey's target is the pretentious scientism in which economists couch their mutual persuasions--a scientism that lingers on as the near-official language of economics discourse long after its inadequacies have been recognized by philosophers and scientists".--NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS.
