Musings on continuum thermodynamic formalism and (yet another) damage model

A technique for setting up generalized continuum theories based on a balance law and nonlocal thermodynamics is suggested. The methodology does not require the introduction of gradients of the internal variable in the free energy. Elements of a generalized damage model with porosity as the internal variable are developed as an example.
