Studying the Chinese Rhetorical Tradition in the Present: Re-Presenting the Native's Point of View
Mao, LuMing
College English, v69 n3 p216-237 Jan 2007
The author identifies limitations in various approaches that Westerners have taken to non-Western rhetorical traditions. Focusing on excerpts from the Analects of Confucius, he demonstrates his own proposed approach to ancient Chinese rhetoric, emphasizing that Westerners studying it should seek to identify its discursive fields while also reflecting on their own conditions.
