A grammar of motives by Kenneth Burke( Book )

74 editions published between 1945 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

About this book Mr. Burke contributes an introductory and summarizing remark, "What is involved, when we say what people are doing and why they are doing it?" An answer to that question is the subject of this book. The book is concerned with the basic forms of thought which, in accordance with the nature of the world as all men necessarily experience it, are exemplified in the attributing of motives. These forms of thought can be embodied profoundly or trivially, truthfully or falsely. They are equally present in systematically elaborated metaphysical structures, in legal judgments, in poetry and fiction, in political and scientific works, in news and in bits of gossip offered at random
A rhetoric of motives by Kenneth Burke( Book )

61 editions published between 1950 and 2013 in English and Japanese and held by 1,710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Rhetoric of Motives expands the field to human ways of persuasion and identification. Persuasion, as Burke sees it, "ranges from the bluntest quest of advantage, as in sales promotion or propaganda, through courtship, social etiquette, education, and the sermon, to a 'pure' form that delights in the process of appeal for itself alone, without ulterior purpose. And identification ranges from the politician who, addressing an audience of farmers, says, 'I was a farm boy myself, ' through the mysteries of social status, to the mystic's devout identification with the sources of all being."
