Publisher's Synopsis

Aristotle's Rhetoric Or The True Grounds And Principles Of Oratory is a philosophical treatise on the art of persuasive communication. Written by the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle, the book explores the principles and techniques of effective public speaking, arguing that rhetoric is an essential skill for anyone seeking to persuade others. The book is divided into three sections, each of which focuses on a different aspect of rhetoric. The first section examines the various types of persuasive speech and the strategies that can be used to make them more effective. The second section explores the different types of arguments that can be used to support a persuasive message, including appeals to emotion, logic, and credibility. The final section discusses the role of the speaker in the persuasive process, including the importance of character, delivery, and audience analysis. Throughout the book, Aristotle draws on examples from ancient Greek literature and politics to illustrate his points, making the text both a theoretical treatise and a practical guide for aspiring orators.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations. Because we believe this work is culturally important, we have made it available as part of our commitment for protecting, preserving, and promoting the world's literature in affordable, high quality, modern editions, that are true to their original work.
