Art and Argument (Print)

Art and Argument: What Words Can't Do and What They Can.

Lanham, MD: University Press of America, 2003.

Can we ever be convinced by arguments? If so, under what circumstances? Is a novel arguing with us? Is it communicating with us? Is art true and false? What is the purpose of literary studies? What is the future of literary theory?

"This work contains wonderful insights into everyday occurrences and helps make certain life experiences seem simple again, in a field that tends to complicate some of the most basic such experiences." Philosophy in Review.

"Let us congratulate Bruce Fleming for having written this book, and for not having written for a coterie but in language that expects to speak to John Doe in the fields of literature and language." Review of Metaphysics
