Towards a Specifically Rhetorical Art of Invention

To learn experimental methods of research in invention. And, without overlooking insights from psycholinguistics and speech act theory concerning a reader's (and writer's) construction of a text, to examine Koestler's theory of "bisociation," in which previously incompatible contexts come to be seen in terms of each other; hemisphericity studies which may help us understand the relations between "places" which are imagistic, and logical propositions; and literary theory, which should help us understand tensions, reflexivity and form, as the shaping of an idea, in rhetorical discourse.
