Experimenting with the Limits of Rhetoric by Daniel Marder( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Noting that in the contemporary world, rhetorical experimentation has proliferated at almost geometric rates, this paper proposes that an understanding of rhetorical variables will help in acquiring an overview and understanding of that rhetorical experimentation. Defining rhetorical variables as all the elements that can take different values in different situations, the paper offers a topology of those variables and shows how they have changed through the ages and in the present according to the controlling ideas of society. The paper also outlines a possible course of study built around the topology. (Fl)
Entropy in Rhetoric by Daniel Marder( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Second Law of Thermodynamics demonstrates the idea of entropy, the tendency of ordered energy to free itself and thus break apart the system that contains it and dissipate that system into chaos. When applied to communications theory, entropy increases not only with noise but with the density of information--particles of possible meaning crowded into a channel at too high a rate for the receiver's decoding ability. Entropy is lowered by redundancies (familiar information) which allow the receiver to anticipate and thus comprehend what will be said next. Entropy is a metaphor in physics and chemistry and a metaphor built on a metaphor in communications theory, where the idea of noise substitutes for the unavailable energy, which is then calculated mathematically and not measured empirically. By examining the idea of entropy, rhetorical theorists can avoid the particular limitations analogical thought tends to establish and explore qualitatively the factors that tend to disorder and to order in rhetorical systems.

Discovery and Entropy in the Revision of Technical Reports by Daniel Marder( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A useful device in revising technical reports is the metaphor of entropy, which refers to the amount of disorder that is present in a system. Applied to communication theory, high entropy would correspond to increased amounts of unfamiliar or useless information in a text. Since entropy in rhetorical systems increases with the unfamiliarity of content, the levels of abstraction, the ambiguities, and the density of relationships (the rate at which the reader is confronted with them), writers can reduce entropy by manipulating these variables. Using redundancies to help the receiver anticipate what will be said next, writers make what is said meaningful and understood. In technical reports, definition is a redundancy for the term defined; analysis is a redundancy for the structure under investigation; and description is a redundancy for the term described. The difficulty with making revisions is that excessive redundancy--too many revisions--tends to become noise, just as unfathomable information is noise. The critical balance between the factors that tend to increase entropy and the factors that writers use to reduce entropy can be expressed in the form of an equation. Writers can use such an equation as a guide for estimating the amount of entropy in their messages and the amount of revision that they should attempt. (Rl)
