H TEXNH: Research Methods and Topics for the History of Rhetoric; Proceedings of the Speech Communication Association Doctoral Honors Seminar (2nd, Bloomington, Indiana, March 1979)
Enos, Richard Leo, Ed.; Wiethoff, William E., Ed.
The theme of the doctoral honors seminar reported here was the reappraisal of rhetorical research. After a preface and the seminar's keynote address about the ten negative commandments for the rhetorical historian, abstracts of seminar presentations are grouped under the headings rhetoric and culture, rhetoric and philosophy, and discourse analysis. Abstracts deal with the following topics: Joseph Priestley personifying eighteenth century "zeitgeist," how to study the "Rhetorimachia" of Anselm De Besate, the rhetoric of Al-Farabi, Plato's knowledge of Gorgias, a synthetic theory of sympathy, reexamining the logic of Peter Ramus, Augustine on teaching, Cicero's rhetorical situation in the "Philippics," the socially constructed reality of Athenian funeral orations, a phenomenological approach to Richard Wagner's "Gesamtkunstwerk" and the emergence of conflicting rhetorical styles in post-restoration England.
