By Barbara Biesecker

Biesecker finds the total diversity of Kenneth Burke's contribution to the opportunity of social change.

In Addressing Postmodernity, Barbara Biesecker examines the connection among rhetoric and social swap and the methods people rework social kinfolk throughout the functional use of symbols.  In discerning the stipulations of danger for social transformation and the position of people and rhetoric in it, Biesecker turns to the seminal paintings of Kenneth Burke.

Through an in depth analyzing of Burke's significant works, A Grammar of Motives, A Rhetoric of Motives, and The Rhetoric of Religion:  stories in Logology, Biesecker addresses the severe subject of the

fragmentation of the modern lifeworld. As Biesecker exhibits, postmodernity could have a tremendous effect on Burkeian scholarship and at the rhetorical critique of social kin in general.

Biesecker confronts at once the demanding situations posed by way of postmodernity to social theorists and critics alike. In juxtaposing the paintings of Burke and Jurgen Habermas, Biesecker argues radicalized rereading of Burke's conception of the damaging opens the best way towards a resolutely rhetorical conception of social swap and human agency.
