Bitzer shows that, by attempting to elaborate a general theory of rhetoric through empirical procedures, Campbells project reveals the limitations of his method. He cannot ground all statements empirically and it is at this point that his theological position comes into play. Inspection of his religious views shows that Gods design of human nature, and Gods revelations to humankind, make moral and spiritual truths known and quite secure to human beings, although not empirically.
