In Addressing Postmodernity, Barbara Biesecker examines the connection among rhetoric and social swap and the methods humans rework social kin throughout the useful use of symbols. In discerning the stipulations of risk for social transformation and the function of humans and rhetoric in it, Biesecker turns to the seminal paintings of Kenneth Burke.
Through an in depth examining of Burke's significant works, A Grammar of Motives, A Rhetoric of Motives, and The Rhetoric of Religion: stories in Logology, Biesecker addresses the severe subject of the

Biesecker confronts without delay the demanding situations posed via postmodernity to social theorists and critics alike. In juxtaposing the paintings of Burke and Jurgen Habermas, Biesecker argues radicalized rereading of Burke's idea of the adverse opens the best way towards a resolutely rhetorical conception of social switch and human agency.
