1 Review
Michael Billig's rhetorical approach has been key to the discursive turn in the social sciences. His witty and original book examines argumentation and its psychological importance in human conduct, and traces the connections between ancient rhetorical ideas and modern social psychology. In a new Introduction, he offers further reflections on rhetoric and social psychology, discusses the recent scholarship, and allows some forgotten voices in the history of rhetoric to be heard. This book will be enjoyable and provocative reading for scholars in social psychology, English language and the history of philosophy.

Review: Arguing and Thinking: A Rhetorical Approach to Social Psychology

User Review  - Andrew - Goodreads

Assigned to me by a rhetoric professor whose class I eventually dropped (not a reflection on the class or professor). Interesting book about the shortcomings of modern (if 1985 is modern) cognitive psychology. Explains a lot about some of my friends. Read full review

Page 15 - The personality is strangely composite: it contains Stone Age elements and principles of a more advanced science, prejudices from all past phases of history at the local level and intuitions of a future philosophy which will be that of a human race united the world over.
