Description:

The act of inventing relates to the process of inquiry, to creativity, to poetic and aesthetic invention. nbsp; Building on the work of rhetoricians, philosophers, linguists, and theorists in other disshy;ciplines, 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 inshy;teract dialectically with society and culture in disshy;tinctive ways. nbsp; Even when the primary agent of invention is an individual, invention is pervasively affected by relashy;tionships of that individual to others through lanshy;guage and other socially shared symbol systems. LeFevre draws implications of a view of invention as a social act for writers, researchers, and teachers of writing.
