In this collection edited by Alan G. Gross and Arthur E. Walzer, scholars in communication, rhetoric and composition, and philosophy seek to “reread” Aristotle’s Rhetoric from a purely rhetorical perspective. So important do these contributors find the Rhetoric, in fact, that a core tenet in this book is that “all subsequent rhetorical theory is but a series of responses to issues raised by the central work.”


The essays reflect on questions basic to rhetoric as a humanistic discipline. Some explore the ways in which the Rhetoric explicates the nature of the art of rhetoric, noting that on this issue, the tensions within the Rhetoric often provide a direct passageway into our own conflicts.


Contributors are Jeanne Fahnestock, Thomas B. Farrell, Robert N. Gaines, Eugene Garver, Lawrence D. Green, Alan G. Gross, Carolyn R. Miller, Jeffrey Walker, Arthur E. Walzer, and Barbara Warnick. The editors’ comprehensive bibliographic essay describes resources that would be of particular help to the Greekless reader and classifies and summarizes nearly one-hundred books and articles written on the Rhetoric.
