Kenneth Burke: A Dialogue of Motives employs the philosophy of ethics of Emmanuel Levinas to develop a uniquely dramatistic philosophy of ethics. Jeffrey Murray analyzes Kenneth Burke's A Grammar of Motives and A Rhetoric of Motives and offers the notion of a dialogue of motives as a completion of Burke's proposed trilogy and as a supplement to Burke's own tools for rhetorical criticism.
