An outgrowth of the recent meeting of the International Society of the History of Rhetoric, this collection challenges the reader to reexamine the broad influence of 18th- and 19th-century Scottish rhetoric, often credited for shaping present-day studies in psychology, philosophy, literary criticism, oral communication, English literature, and composition. The contributors examine its influence and call for a new appraisal of its importance in light of recent scholarship and archival research. Many of the essays in the first section discuss the contributions of recognized influential figures including Adam Smith and Hugh Blair. Other essays focus on the importance of 18th-century Scottish sermons in relation to public discourse, audience analysis, peer evaluation, and professional rhetoric. Essays in the second section address 19th-century rhetorical theory and its influence on North American composition practice.

The popular and successful rhetorical textbooks produced by the 18th century Scottish philosophical tradition, such as George Campbell's The Philosophy of Rhetoric (1776), Hugh Blair's Lectures on Rhetoric and Belles Lettres (1783), and Alexander Bain's English Composition and Rhetoric (1877) have been widely accorded a role in the trajectories of 19th and 20th century literary theory. Scholars have generally overlooked them, however, as philosophical works. The selected writings chosen for this volume show how these rhetorical textbooks were a practical extension of the philosophy of language developed by 18th century Scottish philosophers. Francis Hutcheson, Adam Smith, Thomas Reid, Adam Ferguson, Alexander Gerard, and Henry Home, Lord Kames, advanced a radically new paradigm of language as an inherently mediated practice, directed simultaneously to personal and social, moral and aesthetic uses. This Scottish philosophy of rhetoric powerfully influenced the teaching of language and literacy as tools for social and educational innovation. This volume - the first of its kind - offers a wide variety of writings on rhetoric and rhetorical theory, selected in a way that reveals their intimate connection with the Scottish philosophical tradition.

A re-reading of the Aristotelian corpus from the multiple vantage points of contemporary feminism.In contrast to many previous feminist interpretations of Aristotle, which found much to disparage and little to salvage in his philosophy, the contributors to this volume enter into new, creative, and subtle dimensions of inquiry about Aristotle. They look more deeply into his influence and question the possibility of escape from it.Feminists recognize that they too philosophize within the tradition founded by Plato and Aristotle and owe the Greeks a debt. Aristotle still influences our abstract thinking, search for principles, meditations on virtue, and reflections on nature, essence, and sexual difference. As critics of modernism and liberalism in our day, some feminists seek significant alternatives in the classical era while eschewing ancient sexism.From the essays in this volume, which are divided into two parts, "Theoretical Sciences" and "Practical and Productive Sciences, " reflecting the traditional structure of works in the Aristotelian corpus, we learn not only about Aristotle but about a new feminist methodology in approaching major contemporary issues such as surrogate motherhood and women in the military. We also find a new perspective on feminist debates over whether logic is gendered, the advantages of an "ethics of care, " feminist epistemology, and the nature of critical feminist spectatorship.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Rhetorik / Phonetik / Sprechwissenschaft, Note: 1,3, Georg-August-Universitat Gottingen (Philosophische Fakultat), Veranstaltung: Hauptseminar, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In der vorliegenden Arbeit sollen zwei thematische Schwerpunkte aufgegriffen und naher beleuchtet werden: Zum einem wird die Verteidigungsrede Apologia unter den Aspekten Inhalt, Komposition, Argumentationsstrategie und Authentizitat ansatzweise angerissen, zum anderen liegt der zweite thematische Schwerpunkt auf der Zweiten Sophistik. In dem ersten Schwerpunkt soll der Inhalt, der Aufbau der Rede und mogliche Probleme in zusammenfassender Form dargestellt werden. In dem zweiten Schwerpunkt der vorliegenden Hausarbeit versuche ich den Sophistikbegriff zu definieren, indem ich ihr Entstehen, Wirkung und Grundannahmen als Grundlage fur das Folgende ansatzweise anreisse. Anschliessend gehe ich zu der Definition und den entscheidenden charakteristischen Merkmalen der Zweiten Sophistik uber. Daran anknupfend soll die Frage aufgegriffen werden, ob man die Verteidigungsschrift Apologia als ein Werk der Zweiten Sophistik deklarieren kann. Nach einer allgemeinen Auflistung von Elementen, die die Rede zu einem Werk der Zweiten Sophistik erklaren, soll anhand der Textgrundlage Apul. Apol 4,1 - 7,7 die wichtigsten Elemente im Hinblick auf ihre Funktion innerhalb der Verteidigungsschrift herausgearbeitet und interpretiert werden, die als typisch sophistisch zu betrachten sind und die Verteidigungsschrift Apologie zu einem meisterhaften Werk der Zweiten Sophistik deklarieren. Es geht also darum, auf der ausgewahlten Textgrundlage zu zeigen, warum diese Rede als ein Erzeugnis der Zweiten Sophistik zu betrachten ist. Vor diesem Hintergrund soll auch ansatzweise darauf eingegangen werden, inwiefern bei der vorliegenden Verteidigungsrede eine Literarisierung vorliegt. Kann man von einer starken Literarisierung der Apologia reden? Abschliessend werden in einer Zusammenf
