Example text

Buck’s social perspective was integral to her ethics and approach to rhetoric. Her ethics provided an inclusive method of dealing with conflict and stressed the importance of democratic relationships. It also reduced the traditional duality between feelings and reason because both were necessary for moral action. Value judgments were based on the interplay between an individual’s own desires and a broad critical analysis of the consequences in terms of their social outcomes. In rhetoric, Buck’s social perspective meant that all would participate and that discourse had the potential to promote cooperation and equality.

With the entrance of women into higher education in the nineteenth century, Connors argues that the teaching of rhetoric became feminized, shifting from “a public, civic orientation” to “a more privatized, interiorized and even artistic orientation . ” (23). 10 Instead of viewing the change as the loss of argumentation and debate, they see it as a positive: the rise of a more ethical approach to rhetoric and argumentation. Similar to Buck, Yost contends that “the sophistic theory” has “held almost undisputed sway since the days of Aristotle, and to it may be traced much of the artificiality and insincerity of ‘oratory’” (“Argument from the Point-of-View” 120).

Buck received her bachelor’s in 1894, master’s in 1895, and doctorate in 1898, all at the University of Michigan, where she came under the influence of two powerful intellectual figures—John Dewey and Fred Newton Scott. In her dissertation, Buck acknowledges her debt to Dewey, “for the fundamental philosophic conceptions embodied in it . ” and to Scott, “for much stimulus and criticism” in preparing her thesis (iii). As Rubin points out, Buck’s acknowledgement of Dewey “was no frivolous compliment, but rather the key to her .
