Counter to this, Byron Hawk identifies vitalism because the floor for generating rhetorical texts-the fabricated from complicated fabric family members instead of the manufactured from probability. via insightful historic research starting from classical Greek rhetoric to modern complexity concept, Hawk defines 3 different types of vitalism (oppositional, investigative, and intricate) and argues for his or her software within the environments the place scholars write and imagine today.

Hawk proposes that advanced vitalism will end up a useful gizmo in formulating post-dialectical pedagogies, so much significantly within the context of rising electronic media. He relates particular examples of making use of complicated vitalism within the lecture room and demands the reexamination and reinvention of present self-limiting pedagogies to include vitalism and complexity theory.
