Because I am doing a thesis in rhetoric, I need to be using at least something in rhetoric. Now, I am using rhetorical concepts to critically analyze theory of mind, but those are all small parts of rhetoric where I pull something here and there. A lot of people call the way I analyze things to be the “theoretical framework.” So, all of mine are separate, small ways of bringing down theory of mind.
However, I don’t want to be accused of making a strawman argument (Which basically means that I take something down in a quick and easy way, but there are holes in the logic I use). Therefore, while continuing to use those small pieces, I will also be applying the rhetoric of science framework to theory of mind as well.
So, I am looking at rhetoric of science to be kinda the big theoretical framework that I apply to theory of mind BS.
