Annual Conference in Rhetorical Criticism: Commended Papers (6th, California State Univ., Hayward, May, 1972).
Chalip, Alice Grace, Ed.
At this 1972 conference, upper division and graduate students from nine western colleges submitted papers on the theory, history, and criticism of rhetoric. Three of them are published in this conference report, along with the principal address. In "Rhetorical Criticism as Argument," the principal address, Wayne Brockriede suggests that useful rhetorical criticism must function as argument whether that criticism is evaluation, an analysis of a rhetorical transaction, or an attempt to relate the analysis to general concepts or theories. Charles E. Heisler's paper, "The Rhetoric of Yippie: Rubin at Salt Lake," analyzes Jerry Rubin's address at Salt Lake City in February 1970 as a demonstration of the nonverbal, symbolic orientation of the Yippie protest rhetoric. In "The Implications of Phenomenological Hermeneutics for Rhetorical Criticism," Raymond N. Pedersen discusses modern theories of hermeneutics, the study of the general methods of textual explication as applied to rhetorical interpretation and criticism. In his paper, "Reader's Digest Rhetoric: How Sweet It Is," John Worcester analyzes the world view and subjects of the articles that the "Digest" publishes. (RN)
