 +Introducing his book, Fish insists that "any statement any one of makes is an argument"​ (2) but "there is no end to -- no resolution of -- argument"​ (3). The sections we're reading begin and end with the seemingly paradoxical insistence that "words make the world" (5, 96).To give this view a shorthand label, we might call this a rhetorical view of truth which Fish contrasts with what he calls an anti-rhetorical view in the section entitled "The Impossible Dream."​
