Concealed Rhetoric in Scientistic Sociology – LS: Pedantry: bad instruction on part of social scientist to declare things are one way or the other. Nature of science that things must be replicable to confirm that they are correct (problem: no absolute model, everything is tentative). 3 criteria for social scientific research: 1) what is said is true, 2) what is found is significant, 3) something that isn’t obvious. Social scientist = agent for change. Euphemistic vocabulary: uses this to imply possibility of social change. Weaver = this is bad! Rhetoric needs basis of science because people are inclined to believe things that are in line with existing/fixed natures. Rhet. always carries perspective. Social scientists latched onto physical science for respect. Ultimate Terms in Contemp. Rhet. – ER: “devil terms:” waste, over-consumption, ecoterrorist. “god terms:” expression under which all other expressions are ranked as subordinate, ex. “progress.” Bad vs. good terms: “science:” satisfies a primal need, “fact, modern, efficient, un-american, history, allies, nazis, blue, red.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
