The Viability of the Rhetorical Tradition
Richard Graff, Arthur E. Walzer, Janet Atwill
SUNY Press, Jan 28, 2005 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 203 pages
"The Viability of the Rhetorical Tradition reconsiders the relationship between rhetorical theory, practice, and pedagogy. Continuing the line of questioning begun in the 1980s, contributors examine the duality of a rhetorical canon in determining if past practice can make us more (or less) able to address contemporary concerns. Also examined is the role of tradition as a limiting or inspiring force, rhetoric as a discipline, rhetoric's contribution to interest in civic education and citizenship, and the possibilities digital media offer to scholars of rhetoric."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
