Jesuit "Eloquentia Perfecta" and Theotropic Logology
Mailloux, Steven
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v34 n4 p403-412 Jul 2015
This essay takes a rhetorical pragmatist perspective on current questions concerning educational goals and pedagogical practices. It begins by considering some challenges to rhetorical approaches to education, placing those challenges in the theoretical context of their posing. The essay then describes one current rhetorical approach--based on Kenneth Burke's dramatism and logology--and uses it to understand and redescribe another rhetorical approach--Jesuit teaching of "eloquentia perfecta." Proceeding in this way, the essay presents both a general theoretical framework for discussing educational aims and a specific practical example of how such aims might be achieved.
