Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : Eighteen essays by leading scholars in English, speech communication, educa­tion, and philosophy explore the vitality of the classical rhetorical tradition and its influence on both contemporary dis­course studies and the teaching of writing. Some of the essays investigate the­oretical and historical issues. Others show the bearing of classical rhetoric on contemporary problems in composition, thus blending theory and practice. Com­mon to the varied approaches and view­points expressed in this volume is one central theme: the 20th-century revival of rhetoric entails a recovery of the clas­sical tradition, with its marriage of a rich and fully articulated theory with an equally efficacious practice. A preface demonstrates the contribution of Ed­ward P. J. Corbett to the 20th-century re­vival, and a last chapter includes a bibli­ography of his works.

This book was released on 1990 with total page 600 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : The value of classical rhetoric for both English composition and speech courses has become increasingly clear in recent years. This volume is based on the premise that the system of Aristotle, Cicero, and Quintilian, which taught the student how to find something to say, how to select andorganize material, and how to phrase it in the best possible manner, is still useful and effective--more detailed in coverage and more positive in approach than any of the courses of study that replaced it. Now in its Third Edition, this highly successful textbook continues to present a coherentand realistic approach to the teaching of writing by adapting the principles of classical rhetoric and by using precepts, imitation, and constant practice as its core. The work stresses argumentative discourse, but most of its principles apply equally well to exposition, description, and narration. The new third edition of this classic text has been completely brought up to date, using inclusive language throughout and giving greater representation to women writers; offering shorter, timelier selections; and providing a useful phonetic guide to tropes and figures derived from Greek and Latinwords. Classical Rhetoric for the Modern Student will be an invaluable resource for courses in composition, speech, rhetoric, and linguistics.

Whether you have just passed the bar or have been practing for 30 years, this book will help refine your persuasive skills."---from the Foreword by Carolyn B. Lamm, President of the American Bar Association Argument is the fundamental tool of the lawyer's craft, and this practical book describes the twelve material factors that influence the persuasive effect of any argument. These twelve secrets, based on ideas from some of the world's great thinkers and advocates, will show you how to make the most persuasive argument possible and maximize your success before a judge or jury, in mediation or arbitration, and anywhere else. These secrets of persuasion come from Aristotle's Rhetoric; others were revealed in the classical writings of Quintilian, Cicero, and Demosthenes.

These secrets, both classical and new, can be your key to successful argument.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : Lawyers, law students and their teachers all too frequently overlook the most comprehensive, adaptable and practical analysis of legal discourse ever devised: the classical art of rhetoric. Classical analysis of legal reasoning, methods and strategy is the foundation and source for most modern theories on the topic. Beginning with Aristotle's Rhetoric and culminating with Cicero's De Oratore and Quintilian's Institutio Oratoria, Greek and Roman rhetoricians created a clear, experience-based theoretical framework for analyzing legal discourse. This book is the first to systematically examine the connections between classical rhetoric and modern legal discourse. It traces the history of legal rhetoric from the classical period to the present day and shows how modern theorists have unknowingly benefited from the classical works. It also applies classical rhetorical principles to modern appellate briefs and judicial opinions to demonstrate how a greater familiarity with the classical sources can deepen our understanding of legal reasoning.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : This book expands the theoretical foundations of modern public relations, a growing young profession that lacked even a name until the twentieth century. As the discipline seeks guiding theories and paradigms, rhetorics both ancient and modern have proven to be fruitful fields of exploration. Charles Marsh presents Isocratean rhetoric as an instructive antecedent. Isocrates was praised by Cicero and Quintilian as "the master of all rhetoricians," favored over Plato and Aristotle. By delineating the strategic value of Isocratean rhetoric to modern public relations, Marsh addresses the call for research into the philosophical, theoretical, and ethical origins of the field. He also addresses the call among scholars of classical rhetoric for modern relevance. Because Isocrates maintained that stable relationships must solicit and honor dissent, Marsh analyzes both historic and contemporary challenges to Isocratean rhetoric. He then moves forward to establish the modern applications of Isocrates in persuasion, education, strategic planning, new media, postmodern practices, and paradigms such as excellence theory, communitarianism, fully functioning society theory, and reflection.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : This groundbreaking collection explores the important ways Jesuits have employed rhetoric, the ancient art of persuasion and the current art of communications, from the sixteenth century to the present. Much of the history of how Jesuit traditions contributed to the development of rhetorical theory and pedagogy has been lost, effaced, or dispersed. As a result, those interested in Jesuit education and higher education in the United States, as well as scholars and teachers of rhetoric, are often unaware of this living 450-year-old tradition. Written by highly regarded scholars of rhetoric, composition, education, philosophy, and history, many based at Jesuit colleges and universities, the essays in this volume explore the tradition of Jesuit rhetorical education—that is, constructing “a more usable past” and a viable future for eloquentia perfecta, the Jesuits’ chief aim for the liberal arts. Intended to foster eloquence across the curriculum and into the world beyond, Jesuit rhetoric integrates intellectual rigor, broad knowledge, civic action, and spiritual discernment as the chief goals of the educational experience. Consummate scholars and rhetors, the early Jesuits employed all the intellectual and language arts as “contemplatives in action,” preaching and undertaking missionary, educational, and charitable works in the world. The study, pedagogy, and practice of classical grammar and rhetoric, adapted to Christian humanism, naturally provided a central focus of this powerful educational system as part of the Jesuit commitment to the Ministries of the Word. This book traces the development of Jesuit rhetoric in Renaissance Europe, follows its expansion to the United States, and documents its reemergence on campuses and in scholarly discussions across America in the twenty-first century. Traditions of Eloquence provides a wellspring of insight into the past, present, and future of Jesuit rhetorical traditions. In a period of ongoing reformulations and applications of Jesuit educational mission and identity, this collection of compelling essays helps provide historical context, a sense of continuity in current practice, and a platform for creating future curricula and pedagogy. Moreover it is a valuable resource for anyone interested in understanding a core aspect of the Jesuit educational heritage.

Book excerpt/synopsis : Developed from the very popular fourth chapter of the authors' Classical Rhetoric for the Modern Student, 4th ed., Style and Statement is a concise introduction to the components of effective style as they were first defined by classical rhetoricians and as they apply to writing today. An essential reference for students and all writers, it incorporates numerous lively exercises that emphasize the contemporary applications of classic styles.

A practical application of imitation as a means of developing style introduces the final section of the text, which consists of the analysis of selected short readings ranging from an eighteenth-century work by Hugh Blair to John F. Kennedy's inaugural address.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : By its arrangement and its contents, this collection of essays performs at least two important functions for teachers of writing: it demonstrates that the work of our recent past is still valuable, and it contributes to the efforts of recent years to bridge the gap between theory and practice. Such a new vision of our history and a new level of understanding between practitioners and theorists could provide the foundation for a more productive, enlightened disciplinary future, explains Gary Tate in the foreword to this collection. Teaching Writing: Landmarks and Horizons, edited by Christina Russell McDonald and Robert L. McDonald, is designed to present an overview of some of the major developments in the establishment of composition studies as a field during the past thirty-five years. The essays are theoretically grounded but are focused on pedagogy as well. Divided into two parts, the first presents nine landmark essays, selected and introduced by distinguished composition scholars, and the second brings together eight new essays by emerging scholars.

Book excerpt/synopsis : The third edition of the MLA's widely used Introduction to Scholarship in Modern Languages and Literatures features sixteen new essays by leading scholars. Designed to highlight relations among languages and forms of discourse, the volume is organized into three sections. "Understanding Language" provides an overview of the field of linguistics, with special attention to language acquisition and the social life of languages. "Forming Texts" offers tools for understanding how speakers and writers shape language; it examines scholarship in the distinct but interrelated fields of rhetoric, composition, and poetics. "Reading Literature and Culture" continues the work of the first two sections by introducing major areas of critical study. The nine essays in this section cover textual and historical scholarship; interpretation; comparative, cultural, and translation studies; and the interdisciplinary topics of gender, sexuality, race, and migrations (among others). As in previous volumes, an epilogue examines the role of the scholar in contemporary society. Each essay discusses the significance, underlying assumptions, and limits of an important field of inquiry; traces the historical development of its subject; introduces key terms; outlines modes of research now being pursued; postulates future developments; and provides a list of suggestions for further reading. This book will interest any member of the academic community seeking a review of recent scholarship, while it provides an indispensable resource for undergraduate and graduate students of modern languages and literatures.

Book excerpt/synopsis : Williams (Soka U., California) has compiled nine essays that examine rhetoric and composition from the 1960s to the present: its emergence as a field; the influence of linguistics and psychology in shaping an empirical agenda; the waning of that influence as the field aligned itself more closely with the goals and objectives of traditional English departments; the shift toward postmodern perspectives on language, place, and self; and a move toward post-postmodern concerns. This historical study begins with reminiscences by Richard Lloyd-Jones, W. Ross Winterowd, Frank J. D'Angelo, and John Warnock. The second section examines those changes in detail. For example, Williams makes the connection between rhetoric and democracy, especially the influence of liberal democracy on rhetoric in society. He argues that because our liberal democracy is so focused on entertainment, rhetoric and composition must examine its role in relation to it. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : Reengaging the Prospects of Rhetoric reanimates the debate over the function and scope of rhetoric. Providing a contemporary response to the volume The Prospect of Rhetoric (1971), this volume reconceptualizes that classic work to address the challenges facing the study of rhetoric today. With contributions from today’s leading rhetorical scholars, Reengaging tje Prospects of Rhetoric offers "response" essays to each chapter of the original work. Each scholar uses his/her essay as a forum in which to address three questions: As a historical document, why is this essay important? In terms of contemporary theory and/or practice, what is the significance of the essay? How can the issues raised therein be profitably addressed in the future? These provocative engagements suggest that, while the study of rhetoric has gained much ground in the intervening decades, there is more work to be done to reestablish the primacy of rhetoric in contemporary society. This volume provides students and scholars of rhetoric with a strong foundation in the issues that have shaped contemporary rhetorical theory and criticism. It offers them an accessible introduction to the challenges facing future iterations of rhetorical theory and criticism. As a standalone text or a supplemental resource for undergraduate and graduate courses in the history, theory, and criticism of rhetoric or contemporary rhetorical theory, it will help to shape rhetoric’s future role in communication studies and will foster interdisciplinary dialogues about the topic.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : Classical rhetorical techniques can enhance the persuasiveness of Supreme Court opinions by making their language clear, lively, and memorable. This book focuses on three techniques—“invention” (creation of arguments), “arrangement” (organization), and “style” (word choice)—in the work of Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., Robert Jackson, Hugo Black, William Brennan, and Antonin Scalia, respectively. The justices featured here contributed to the Court’s rhetorical legacy in different ways, but all five rejected the magisterial opinion style of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in favor of a more personal and conversational format. As a result, their opinions have endured, and even modern readers who cannot recall the justices’ names understand and embrace the ideas expressed in their legal writings and apply those ideas to current debates. Practicing lawyers, professors, and students can use this book to study legal writing techniques and make their own writing more persuasive.
