EN 4150 - The Tradition of Rhetoric: Principles and Practices

This course examines rhetorical history and theory as it started in classical Greece, developed in ancient Rome, was modified in medieval times, and matured into modern times. The use of rhetoric as a practical force, as a base in the academic tradition, as part of modern media (including the work of Walter J. Ong), and as a necessary part of pedagogy in teaching is reviewed in its methods and concepts as a valuable principle in human communication.

Prerequisite: EN 1110 /EN 1120 , or EN 1140 , or EN 1150 .
