Example text

However, according to Shapin and the research he builds on, this change did not lead to the universal application of strict empiricism in the collection, schematization, and presentation of scientific data, and it also did not imply the sudden rejection of traditional forms of knowledge (as provided by the ancient authorities, the church, and the occult traditions). Within this landscape of energetic public debates and slow conceptual shifts, neoclassical criticism, and its scientific appeal, should be read as a negotiation between the ancient and the modern.

Our man Richard now needs to chart a path across this situation which helps him achieve his aim of crossing the road. Here, the “successful solution” becomes three-​dimensional. It is a set of moves which takes advantage of the logic of the situation, and it is conceivable that there is more than one such successful solution in any given situation. If we transfer Popper’s example to neoclassical poetics, then the rules correspond to instructions for making such a path across the situation. The rules are successful because they chart these paths with elegant simplicity, playing the logic of situations.

Concern yourself with decorum. If you let the critic blink the sleep out of her eyes and chat with her over a cup of coffee, the more complex picture of the rules which I have painted in the previous chapter would emerge. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the rules were a debate and not dogma. However, they have their roots in the tradition of rhetorics. This heritage not only foregrounds the craftedness of any kind of text but also points toward the need to play into the processes of cognition in audiences and readers.
