  • Menanderby Malcolm Heath

    OUP Oxford 2004; US$ 234.99 US$ 202.09

    Ancient schools of rhetoric taught students how to devise arguments in legal and political disputes, and how to express them.

This detailed reassessment of the history and social significance of rhetoric in late antiquity shows how it was... more...

  • Götter, Mythen, Philosophenby Fabio Berdozzo

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 163.25

But how can rhetorical theory? which like any other theory has to abstract? grasp appropriateness as a phenomenon? What concepts did it develop in order to achieve this? The central... more...
