The authors of this volume explore rhetorical and discursive strategies used to negotiate and establish legitimate knowledge and its disciplinary boundaries, to make scientific knowledge interesting outside academic settings as well, and to manage (c)overt knowledge in different social and political contexts. The volume focuses on the cultural concept of knowledge society, examining diverse linguistic means of knowledge transmission from the perspective of the complex interplay between knowledge and persuasion. The contributors discuss both sociological and philosophical issues, as well as textual processes in different genres that aim to communicate knowledge.

Rhetorical approaches towards knowledge
Abstract: The chapter explores rhetoric and knowledge relationships, from the idea that rhetoric may convey only common knowledge to the view that any kind of knowledge, also scientific one, mobilizes rhetorical resources. The paper focuses on differences among selected disciplinary approaches – the General, the Cognitive and the Epistemic Rhetoric – which explicitly address knowledge issues.
