Cosmos and the Rhetoric of Popular Science

Cosmos and the Rhetoric of Popular Science
Lexington Books | English | 2017 | ISBN-10: 149850759X | 178 pages | PDF | 1.45 mb
by Karen Schroeder Sorensen (Author)

Carl Sagans Cosmos inspires audiences to look at the universe with new eyes and to appreciate humanitys importance in it. Sagans deft use of rhetorical strategy creates an experience that pushes beyond the limits of a mere educational program to reveal a mythic adventure. Although Sagan contributed much to the field of science as well as to public understanding of it, Cosmos remains his signature brand. Cosmos and the Rhetoric of Popular Science builds on Thomas M. Lessls observations regarding Cosmos connection to the mythic and science fiction. It delves deeply into Sagans rhetorical construction of the program in order to understand what elements contributed to its mythos.

Review
Cosmos series, is an excellent example of the popularized communication of scientific knowledge. This will be indispensable in every library. (Barry Brummett, University of Texas at Austin)

In a deft analysis, Schroeder Sorensen explores the cultural impact that the PBS series, Cosmos, has enjoyed—and continues to enjoy—with American audiences. As Schroeder Sorenson shows, much of the series success rests in Sagans carefully-constructed image as scientist, Odyssean space explorer, and trusted companion. In analyzing Sagans ethos, Schroder Sorensen offers readers a useful toolkit for further explorations of science and its intersections with popular culture. (James S. Baumlin, Distinguished Professor, Missouri State University)

This book offers a much-needed contribution to the rhetoric of science by elaborating on concepts that often go unexplored (or at least underexplored), most particularly mythos and storytelling. Where much work in rhetoric of science focuses on logos and persuasion, or on pathos and identification, Schroeder Sorensen shows how Sagan evoked various powerful myths—from blockbuster films to Christianity—to foster public television viewers feelings of identification with science and scientists. By approaching the question of identification via mythos, Schroeder Sorensen offers new ways to understand the epideictic function through which science popularization builds communities. (Sarah Perrault, University of California, Davis, Ph.D.)

A rhetorical analyst is primarily concerned with how a text means. Professors Sorensens treatment of this matter in her analysis of the popular science miniseries Cosmos: A Personal Voyage is impressive. Sorenson lends a skillful eye to the way the miniseries became and remains a rhetorically vibrant and mesmerizing narrative of our civilization and its status in the ever-expanding universe. Students of rhetoric will receive a valuable education as they read Sorensens book. Highly recommended. (Michael J. Hyde, university distinguished professor of communication ethics, Wake Forest University)
