Dissent, Controversy and the Basic Course: The Question of Cathexis.
Phillips, Kendall R.
This paper poses questions about the pedagogical basis of public speaking courses, based on the issue of traditional course models versus models which are more closely aligned with current rhetorical philosophy. The discussion in the paper centers around the potential integration of current philosophy into teaching practice. It addresses three primary topics: (1) the energy instigating a person to public speaking (student energy); (2) the absence of enthusiasm regarding public speaking instruction (teacher energy); and (3) the need for the public speaking course (is this investment of energy worthwhile?). Contains 4 references. (EF)
