Course Description

Aristotle defined rhetoric over 2000 years ago as the art of discovering, in any given case, the available means of persuasion. Since then, views on persuasion have shifted in tenor and scope but all emphasize its role in shaping public life. Offering a survey from ancient Greek and Roman texts through to contemporary rhetorical criticism and related fields, this course examines how we use rhetoric to negotiate knowledge, belief, and action in various contexts.
