Overview

HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics.Despite dating from the 4th century BC, The Art of Rhetoric continues to be regarded by many as the single most important work on the art of persuasion. As democracy began emerging in 5th-century Athens, public speaking and debate became an increasingly important tool to garner influence in the assemblies, councils, and law courts of ancient Greece. In response to this, both politicians and ordinary citizens became desperate to learn greater skills in this area, as well as the philosophy behind it. This treatise was one of the first to provide just that, establishing methods and observations of informal reasoning and style, and has continued to be hugely influential on public speaking and philosophy today.Aristotle, the grandfather of philosophy, student of Plato, and teacher of Alexander the Great, was one of the first people to create a comprehensive system of philosophy, encompassing logic, morality, aesthetics, politics, ethics, and science. Although written over 2,000 years ago, The Art of Rhetoric remains a comprehensive introduction for philosophy students into the subject of rhetoric, as well as a useful manual for anyone today looking to improve their oratory skills of persuasion.

    That's an excellent question, Merida! When monsters die they usually leave behind a pile of dust or ashes. But sometimes they drop limbs, armor, clothing or some other armament. This is know as Spoils of War.

    He walked in calmly, carrying a blue note book, ringed. "This work? Got a sketch book to, for diagrams. " he walked back to his seat, up front, and sat, slipping his satchel over his chair.

    Core Work in Understanding Aristotle

    In a sense, one begins at the beginning of the collected works of Aristotle. However, another fine place to begin is with The Art of Rhetoric. This is partly true because this work explains how Aristotle himself makes his arguments. Reading this work is an intellectual adventure.
