At the same time—and certainly more than his colleagues aforementioned—Corder sought to pour new wine into the old vessels, radically reinterpreting the classical canons and vocabulary. Even as we seek to understand, appreciate, and apply his theory, we can admit without much loss that Corder is intuitive, speculative, repetitive, often (by his own admission) quirky in his arguments, stingy in his scholarly citations, and given to formal and stylistic experimentation—all of which makes his writings, the later works especially, a mixed bag of mixed genres and effects.

S Each rhetoric, thus, is describable as an epistemology, a psychology, a sociology of discourse, and a theory (indeed, an implicit theology) of language. And any change in any one of these underlying premises effects a corresponding change in the structures, powers, and functioning of discourse. * Through the following pages, I sketch out a broad (and, admittedly, partial) outline of Corderian rhetoric, seeking to reconstruct its major epistemological, psychological, and linguistic premises. I argue that Corderian expressionism is grounded squarely and demonstrably within 28 BAUMLJN an existentialist psychology, in which the problem of self-identity remains always the central focus.
