Law is most usefully seen not, as it usually seen by academics and philosophers, as a system of rules, but as a branch of rhetoric, and . . . the kind of rhetoric of which law is a species is most usefully seen not, as rhetoric usually is either as failed science or as the ignoble art of persuasion, but as the central art by which community and culture are established, maintained, and transformed.  So regarded, rhetoric is continuous with law, and like it, has justice as its ultimate aim.  ("Law as Rhetoric, Rhetoric as Law: the Arts of Cultural and Communal Life" 52)
