Campbell on the Passions: A Rereading of the "Philosophy of Rhetoric."
Walzer, Arthur E.
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v85 n1 p72-85 Feb 1999
Explicates George Campbell's theory of persuasion as presented in his "Philosophy of Rhetoric." Suggests that what is truly striking about his theory of persuasion is its remarkable coherence, coherence that comes into view through attention to the three most important, related terms--the sentiments, passions, and dispositions.
