Offering a new approach to the concept of audience, this volume
critiques the prevalent audience theories and practices in the
field of rhetoric and composition, using the archaeological
methodology of Michel Foucault. The author traces major audience
treatments from Aristotle and George Campbell to the present and
shows how the dominant approaches are founded on a managerial
composing model which assumes that invention is the exclusive
activity of the writer. Porter argues for the ethical necessity of
a social constructionist approach to audience, developing out of
reader-response and poststructuralist theory. For anyone involved
in the creation of public policy.
