Rhetoric and the Social Matrix: Reflections from the Asian Classics.
Oliver, Robert T.
As humanity seeks a new social matrix which is suited to the global conditions that have ended the isolation of communities, we must learn to understand the various rhetorics of different cultures. This paper explores at length some of the richness of rhetorical theory within the classics of the East, including the "Upanishads," and in the ideas and beliefs of Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Confucius, and Mencius. It concludes that Asian rhetorics, neglected for so long, have much to offer professors and students of rhetoric in the West. (JM)
