Uses of Rhetoric.
Cordor, Jim W.
This book is an attempt to understand the extension of rhetoric in many directions, not only as a subject matter but also as an analyzing, organizing, and liberating agent. Chapter One is intended as a general introduction to rhetoric, with some account by means of illustrations of its possibilities within what is an expected range. Chapter Two is a discussion of the evolving character of rhetoric. Chapter Three proposes extensions and uses of rhetoric beyond the customary, expected ranges of Chapter One. The remaining chapters suggest both expected uses and unexploited possibilities of rhetoric in the classroom (Chapter Four), in the curriculum (Chapter Five), and in larger arenas including literacy criticism, group discourse, and electronic media (Chapter Six). Chapter Seven seeks to gather some last questions and observations. (Author/DB)
