    Arguments and Metaphors in Philosophy. [REVIEW]Jean Dietz Moss - 2005 - Review of Metaphysics 58 (4):884-886.

    Vico in the Tradition of Rhetoric.Jean Dietz Moss - 1986 - Review of Metaphysics 39 (3):574-576.

    The Place of Emotion in Argument.Jean Dietz Moss - 1994 - Review of Metaphysics 47 (4):846-848.
    In this book Douglas Walton makes a subtle and scholarly case for a reconsideration of emotion in argument. The result is an important addition to the study of argumentation, one of several areas in which philosophy has contributed to rhetorical studies. A philosopher who teaches at the University of Winnipeg, Walton evinces erudition in both fields. He relates his study to classical dialectic and rhetoric, and deepens and modifies analyses of modern scholars.
