The principle arguments of McCloskey’s rhetoric have been developed in numerous journal articles and books since her pioneering 1983 paper in the Journal of Economic Literature. I will focus here primarily on Knowledge and Persuasion in Economics (1994) because it reiterates, reinterprets, and develops the principle arguments that appeared in The Rhetoric of Economics (1985) and several other texts. Knowledge and Persuasion also articulates the philosophical basis of McCloskey’s contribution to the discussion on the rhetoric of economics and includes replies to criticism and further refinements and illustrations.
