Richard M. Weaver--Proponent of a Conservative Rhetoric.
Merritt, Floyd E.
Richard M. Weaver had a profound influence on the contemporary American conservative movement in general and on many of its leading spokesmen. Weaver is of interest to the student of rhetoric not only because of his philosophical and ideological contributions to American conservatism, but also because he is the proponent of a unique brand of rhetoric--a conservative rhetoric. This paper analyzes Weaver's concept of the nature and role of rhetoric. Information on Weaver's background, education, and the development of his political and rhetorical views is also provided.
