Description

Essays on Aristotle's Rhetoric" offers a fresh and com-prehensive assessment of a classic work. Aristotle's influence on the practice and theory of rhetoric, as it affects political and legal argumentation, has been continuous and far-reaching. This anthology presents Aristotle's "Rhetoric" in its original context, providing examples of the kind of oratory whose success Aristotle explains and analyses. The contributors - eminent philosophers, classicists, and critics - assess the role and the techniques of rhetorical persuasion in philosophic discourse and in the public sphere. They connect Aristotle's "Rhetoric" to his other work on ethics and politics, as well as to his ideas on logic, psychology, and philosophy of language. The collection as a whole invites us to reassess the place of rhetoric in intellectual and political life.
