Eagleton takes rhetoric to be the mode devoted to "analyzing the material effects of particular uses of language in particular social conjunctures" (Eagleton 1981, 101). The perspective of a Marxist reading of assent, then, would foreground class strugglerather than consensusand would accompany it with a theory of discourse production and effects. " is thus recast as a question regarding the conjuncture of discursive practices and the nature of the social formation in which such practices arise and which help to determine their impact.

Within this perspective, criticism has no normative dimension. It is, in the words of the leading proponent of field theory, merely "a mode of epistemology that aims at illuminating the effects of assumptions" (Willard 1982b, 47). The remaining essays from the Wake Forest conference try to address this concern in a more explicit manner. Some attempt to extend the field's interest in arguing to a reflection upon the social assumptions and conditions for the occurrence of argument as such. And this, I think, begins to offer an account of argumentation theory itself as a kind of practice, a "critical" practice competent to address the sociality of argument.

Our understanding of the symbolic form and function of arguing in conversation and in fields such as law has grown as a consequence. The focus on practices, nevertheless, raises other questionsquestions about the social assumptions and condi- Page 7 tions for the occurrence of argumentthat cannot be answered from within the first research program. The remaining essays in this volume have, therefore, tried to approach the problem of normative theory from a more reflective stance, by asking about the possibility of "justified" assent as such.
