dc.description.abstract Attempts to define rhetoric as material have been criticized for turning back to idealism or reifying the material/ideal binary that sustains the problematic assumptions of idealism. This failure is at least partially due to the paucity of critical terms available within the rhetorical lexicon to broach questions of materiality. This essay examines modern neuroscience theories and assesses their potential for offering alternative ways of conceptualizing the materiality/ideality binary. The essay concludes with a case study of “black power” to illustrate the difference a materialist conception of rhetoric makes for rhetorical criticism. en_US
