The history of rhetoric has long had a similar cultural divide between the rhetoric of men and of women. The number of elocutionary texts written by and for women is quite extraordinary. Thus Wollstonecraft, and others, recognized the importance of elocutionary education for women while remaining cognizant of the constraints females faced. Adamidis, Vasileios University of Exeter, Nikaia, Greece The Rhetorical Impact of Basanos in the Courts of Classical Athens My presentation aims to explore the underlying rationale behind the use of challenges or dares in the courts of classical Athens.

In particular, by examining the speeches surviving in the canon of the Attic orators ca. Although the practical application of this procedure is questionable, its presence in the form of rhetorical challenge is widespread and calls for analysis. Most Athenian trials were triggered by hard to prove factual disputes.

Persuasive rhetoric formed the main way for a litigant to prove his case.

The Defense of Palamedes

The horgias inflexibility of this institution usually gave rise to disagreement between the parties, providing rhetorical advantage to the initiator and a disadvantage to the refusing party. I aim to explain how the Greek ideas of rational decision-making and explanation of human action formed the reasons behind the rhetorical tactics surrounding this procedure.

By contrast, the Greek inferential reasoning interpreted human action as motivated by reasons and reasoning drawn from previous experience. Any discrepancy between these three pillars of human action could be severely damaging.

This can be translated with The art of Memory in Western Countries. Each chapter was analyzed according to the art of memory. On this issue, it is noteworthy to see how and why Ricci used the western gorgiaas theory paalamedes understanding and analyzing both Chinese characters and texts. Terence and Celestina Rhetoric in the classical antiquity regarded gestures as a part of the delivery or actio goorgias should be subordinated to the speech Aristotle, Quintilian.

However, 16th- and 17th-century authors such as Arias Montano in his biblical commentariesGiovanni Bonifacio in his L’arte de’ Cennior John Bulwer in The Chirologia and Chironomia conceived of them as a transnational language that would make possible a greater understanding among men.

In palamdees same light, the dfensa engravings of theatrical editions, such as the famous illustrations of the comedies of Terence Strasburg: Plots, therefore, aimed at relying on depicted gestures, postures, and clothing to tell the story of a comedy.

Following the model of the editions of Deefnsa, a pan European bestseller like La Celestina Burgos, relied on its woodcuts to present the readers with different interpretations of the play. The woodcuts accompanying vefensa of its early editions have been studied as belonging to the avant-garde of the printing press Burgos: Fadrique de Basilea, or as a commercial model through the depiction of violence Seville: Building upon this scholarship, my paper will explore how printers and illustrators codified the text through the specific gestures represented in the woodcuts of Spanish gorguas Italian editions.

In particular I will study how these gestures relate with the different readings in contemporary treatises such as Bonifacio or Bulwer, and what they are able to tell us about contemporary dramatic gorigas and the movements of the actors on the stage. These illustrations allow us to see how some early modern readers perceived the work and how they positioned themselves within contemporary debates on decorum, or on the art of oratory, especially in the case of those 16th-century editions in which a new set of woodcuts was created for the occasion.

Hardenberg goes to great rhetorical lengths to authorize his frankness towards the addressee of his discourse, King Frederick III. However, among the suggestions palameded necessary liberalizations Hardenberg presents to the king, one demand is carefully avoided: Dio examines the sources of human knowledge of god singularquestioning why poetry, law, and art are necessary if according to Stoic doctrine humans are innately capable of perceiving god and the divine order of nature. Dio also calls on Pheidias to justify the sources of his knowledge of god on which he based his image of Defesna.

In ddefensa ways, each argument reinforces the significance of a higher order that rises above local cults in much the same way the emperor supersedes local powers and identities. The games, like a good king, bring all men together 1. A kingly nature, combined with the cultivation of an appropriate temperament and knowledge of the art of ruling, would make an emperor a son of Zeus 4.


This paper is part of a larger project that argues Greek sophists played in important role in interpreting and mediating material culture under empire, reminding Roman subjects of what they should praise and blame in their statues, monuments, and cities. Gray observed, the Renaissance humanists who were closely connected with the schools and teaching of eloquence palanedes the classical precepts of rhetoric to all form of literature. So no wonder that school exercises in the art of oratory inspired in 16th- and especially 17th-century religious polemics and confessional texts.

Classical eloquence was still the chief aim of Protestant and Jesuit teachers but both of them were also interested in the religious formation of their students, what has resulted in increasing the cultural differences between Lutherans and Calvinist on the one side and Catholics on the other.

All of them keep all or most of exercises of Aphthonius unchanged with relatively slight modifications of their theory but at the same time they introduce absolutely new exemplary elaborations: Micraelius starts a bitter anti-Catholic dispute especially in the chapters dedicated to the narrative and refutationwhen Masen defends the Roman catholic church position against Lutherans in chapter on refutation and Pomey ridicules Luther in his ironical praise and attacks Calvin in chapter on amplification.

The goal of the paper is to examin the rhetorical exercises involved in religious propagation and polemics in historical and cultural perspective. Roman in the Late Roman Republic The focus of this paper is the cultural and social expectations that surround the teaching of rhetoric in the Roman republic. While oratory could be described as one of the more thoroughly Romanized Greek cultural practices, rhetorical theory and, even more pointedly, the teaching of rhetoric continued to be seen as primarily Greek.

The reasons for this are twofold: The opening of the last century of the republic saw the conflict over the attempt to teach rhetoric in Latin in the formalized setting of a school. The incident is still poorly understood given the paucity of evidence, but the importance of this clash is clear: Meanwhile, the elite youth continued to seek rhetorical instruction in Greece from eminent teachers, such as Apollonius Molon.

At the same time, the traditional educational model based on observation of seasoned practitioners at work remained important and was often held up as both superior and because indigenous. In this paper I explore how the contradictory attitudes to receiving rhetorical instruction from Greek vs.

Roman teachers find expression in late republican rhetorical texts and investigate the underlying prejudices. In addition to Cicero, on whose various texts rhetorical, philosophical, and epistolary one must rely in such an endeavor, I will discuss the Rhetoric to Herennius, whose unknown author explicitly pits his undertaking of writing a rhetorical manual against what is available from Greek teachers.

Whereas Greek influence on Arabic medicine, philosophy and the sciences is more than obvious, it is much less so in the Arabic theory of rhetoric, a field that developed as early and as quickly as the others. It soon evolved into one of the most effective, elaborate theories of rhetoric ever and became one of the basic disciplines of the Islamic curriculum.

Less conspicuous is the fact that, on the other hand, Aristotelian logic and even Greek sciences exerted a much more important influence. Nevertheless, it predetermined the way Arabic rhetoric theory should take in the subsequent centuries. During a comparatively short time, Arabic rhetoric developed into a discipline of linguistics.

As such, it became less a theory of persuasion but rather a fully developed, sophisticated linguistic theory of communication. The holy text, revealed in Arabic, served as a role model with regard to grammar, lexis, and rhetoric.

Likewise, the poetic tradition lived on not only as a rich inventory for linguistic examples but also as a demonstration for an intrinsic linguistic and rhetorical prowess. This proclaimed aptitude for languages in general and for the Arabic language in palamsdes manifested itself in palamddes idea gorgiaas the superiority of Arabic culture and, as a point of culmination, of the superiority of Arabic rhetoric. Nevertheless, our educated medieval authors have been well aware of the cultural interrelations and of their Classical, Persian, and Indian heritage, to name the most prominent traditions.

This paper will show how Arabic authors, first of all the famous scholar al-Jahiz d. This does not only concern possible borrowings but rather the question how scholars dealt intellectually with the tension that evolved from two competing cultural concepts: I manuali superstiti di Teone, Ps.

Medvedev, who wrote on the verbal arts in the Soviet Union from the twenties through the eighties. Their work is commonly taken to have denigrated poetry and rhetoric in favor of the novel, but I will argue that the writings of the Bakhtin School gorias a productive account of lyric poetry that draws upon and transforms Aristotelian epideictic rhetoric. Voloshinov adds evaluation of the listener to evaluation of the hero, in comparable terms that reflect hierarchical social relations and intimate or distant interpersonal ones.


Crowley, Connors and Corbett, and Ferreira-Buckley and Horner, for example, all figure Blair as the spark that would later ignite the rigid, rule-bound era of current-traditional rhetoric of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, an era whose preoccupations continue to impact current-day American composition instruction.

Yet, Blair’s popular Lectures on Rhetoric and Belles Lettres LORused by universities and individual readers alike, explicitly denounces correctness for correctness’s sake, explains that taste differs from culture to culture and from individual to individual, and values audience expectations of usage over proper words.

As “no nineteenth-century rhetoric used in American colleges approaches the total version of Blair’s lectures” 79I plot how these adaptations and abridgments made for the “scholarly commonplace” of Blair as “the epitome of what was weak or pernicious in belletristic rhetoric and its nineteenth- and twentiethcentury heirs” Carr In addition, I track how editors and publishers negotiated seeming hypocrisies within Blair’s work.

How, for example, did they reconcile his belief of a universal correct taste alongside his description of taste as culturally-bound and individual? With this re-reading of Blair and the many adaptations of his work, I historicize how Enlightenment-era Blair came to be seen xefensa representative of nineteenth- and twentieth-century American current-traditional rhetoric.

Additionally, I re-frame Blair as a rhetorical theorist deeply invested in the New Science. Der Vortrag befasst sich mit df Rolle, die Herodot verschiedenen Kulturen der Rede im Zusammenhang interpolitischer oder interethnischer Diplomatie zuweist. Lassen sich Eigenarten rhetorischer Praxis bei Herodot als kulturelle Stereotypen erkennen?

Inwiefern korrespondieren sie mit weiteren kulturellen Klischees?

The Defense of Palamedes by Gorgias of Leontini

Rhetoricians in the ancient Greco-Roman world realized this full well and therefore developed theories and methods for oratio figurata: In the twentieth century, with the rise of modern pragmatics as a linguistic discipline, linguists and philosophers like Searle, Grice, and Levinson, unaware of their ancient predecessors, became interested in indirect ways of conveying messages. They came up with concepts like indirect speech act, implicature, and politeness theory, which show remarkable similarities with their ancient counterparts.

Doing so will enable me on the one hand to clarify ancient concepts by means of their modern parallels, and on the other to lay the foundations for a pre-history of modern pragmatics. Donnelly, an important American Jesuit rhetorical educator during the early twentieth century, someone whose work has not been closely examined by rhetoric scholars.

While classics-based rhetorical education was disappearing from American colleges, including in some Jesuit institutions, Donnelly devoted himself to rhetorical instruction, teaching classical rhetoric at multiple Jesuit colleges in the Northeast — Boston College, Fordham, and Holy Cross — and produced many books on writing and speaking, including The Art of Interesting: These books represent the largest number of publications on rhetorical education by an American Jesuit in the first half of the 20th century.

He wrote books on many subjects: It was a battle that he was destined to lose in his lifetime. However, those views still resonate in the educational practices of many Jesuit institutions, especially those attempting to reanimate “eloquentia perfecta” across the liberal arts.

Historical Perspectives on Ambiguity as a Defens Device Gorgais the so called linguistic turn the ambiguity of language has surfaced as a theme in many academic texts. Torgias we consult historical sources on the subject of ambiguity, we also find it as a recurring catalyst and focus of study.

But in prescriptions for rhetorica utens we find strong recommendations against ambiguity, and a conception of it as sophistry. In Aristotle we find ambiguity as a family of logical fallacies in the Sophistical refutations, and in Rhetoric the use of ambiguous language is dismissed as a device to hide that the orator has nothing to say a.

Where ambiguity is discussed as having positive uses, such as where Ad Herennium discusses emphasis IV. Beginning in the 20th century, scholars have studied ambiguity as a productive rhetorical strategy under term rhetorical polysemy. In this presentation, I focus on the evaluations of ambiguity as a rhetorical device through a selection of treatises on rhetoric, stylistics and poetics from the older sophists to the 20th century.

The material is chosen to give a selection of treatises written under widely different social and political circumstances. I test the hypothesis that the valence of ambiguity as a rhetorical device is related to the extent that the treatise dichotomizes rhetoric and poetics, and the sociopolitical functions the treatise ascribe them.

This is done by close reading of the texts focusing on comments on stylistics and argumentation, analyzed in relation to the political contexts palamede the time the material was written in.
