  • Description

    Avoiding philosophical jargon, Crusius argues that, because everything human beings do involves the process of interpretation (hermeneutics), a theory of interpretation is essential to the teaching of writing. Crusius sets forth the basic propositions of a hermeneutical rhetoric; presents his own theory, comparing and contrasting it with the works of Berlin and Kinneavy; and outlines a pedagogical approach that enables students to find an authentic voice through interpreting their world and writing about it.
