The Classical Doctrine of "Status" and the Rhetorical Theory of Argumentation.
Braet, Antoine
Philosophy and Rhetoric, v20 n2 p79-93 1987
Discusses the best known modern theory of argumentation, that of Perelman and Olbrechts-Tyteca, which follows from classical rhetoric and contains a monological view of argumentation, concentrating on effectiveness with a passive audience. Argues that it is at least a partially incorrect interpretation of the classical rhetorical theory of argumentation and is not interested purely in effectiveness. (NKA)
