"Rhetorike": What's in a Name? Toward a Revised History of Early Greek Rhetorical Theory.
Schiappa, Edward
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v78 n1 p1-15 Feb 1992
Discusses philological evidence supporting a fourth-century origin of the word "rhetorike." Demonstrates that, once named, rhetoric became increasingly disciplinized. Argues that the naming of the phenomena is as relevant to the naming of disciplines as to other social realities. Suggests ways traditional accounts of fifth-century rhetorical theory need to be revised. (SR)
