כריכה קדמית
Oxford University Press, 1991 - 335 עמודים
The first new translation of Aristotle's Rhetoric in fifty years, based on careful study of the Greek text and informed by the best modern scholarship, this is the most faithful English version ever published of the book that first defined and organized the study of civic discourse along philosophical lines and still shapes the study of rhetoric and composition in modern times. Comprehensive introductory discussions, a detailed outline, extensive notes, and a glossary of Aristotle's rhetorical terms make the work readily accessible to modern students, while an appendix offers translations of relevant ancient texts and essays on the composition and history of the treatise, with an evaluation of its strengths and weaknesses. This volume is essential for students and scholars of rhetoric, classics, politics, and philosophy.
