Classical Greek Rhetorical Theory and the Disciplining of Discourse 1st Edition
Use the Amazon App to scan ISBNs and compare prices.
This book contributes to the history of classical rhetoric by focusing on how key terms helped to conceptualize and organize the study and teaching of oratory. David Timmerman and Edward Schiappa demonstrate that the intellectual and political history of Greek rhetorical theory can be enhanced by a better understanding of the emergence of "terms of art" in texts about persuasive speaking and argumentation.
