Research in Rhetoric in China.
Garrett, Mary M.
In the last 5 or 6 years, there has been an outburst of scholarly work published about traditional and contemporary Chinese rhetoric. Some of these pieces have appeared in communication journals and some in English and composition journals, and disciplinary boundaries may have prevented getting a good idea of exactly what, and how much research, is going on. Most of the work done so far concerns rhetoric of the Classical Chinese period or of the modern era--much more remains to be done. The great wealth of texts, both of theory and of practice, have so far received almost no attention from rhetoricians. Early Chinese philosophy is an extremely rhetorical phenomenon, therefore an understanding of rhetoric is crucial for understanding Chinese political and intellectual life. (A bibliography of 20 recent works on Chinese rhetoric is attached.) (CR)
