Ethos: Socrates Talks Himself Out of His Body: Ethical Argument and Personal Immortality in the Phaedo
Book Description [taken from its Introduction]:
The essays in A Companion to Rhetoric and Rhetorical Criticism explore rhetoric as a practical art of deliberation and judgment, best taught and learned through concrete examples of argument, interpretation, and criticism.[…]Essays in this collection face the challenging problems of recent developments in rhetoric, including important reinterpretations of its history, and meditate on rhetoric’s place in past cultures.
