Mirror Neurons in a Group Analysis “Hall of Mirrors”: Translation as a Rhetorical Approach to Neurodisciplinary Writing

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

This article examines how mirror neuron research from the neurosciences is incorporated by the field of group analysis and made to fit within the history and practices of the field. The approach taken is from science and technology studies’ discussion of “translation” across actor-networks. The article ends with the suggestion that a translation analysis indicates good reason for rhetoric and writing scholars to consider “multiple ontologies” and to understand neurodisciplinary work as invention.
