The Pedagogy of Visual Discourse: An Analytical Approach to Teaching and Evaluating the Rhetorical Image  [PDF]
Jacqueline Irwin
Art and Design Review (ADR) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/adr.2014.22003

As the area of visual rhetoric develops and evolves, the approaches that critics take in evaluating images must be scrutinized for the overall exploration of the discipline. Incorporating areas of analytical criticism from rhetoric to aesthetics to design should be combined to create the best possible way of evaluating imagery. By expanding on the traditional analytical approach to rhetorical criticism, this paper explores how the additional understanding of aesthetic and design theory will help the critic to reach a fuller understanding of the image. The twelve major principles of design being line, shape and form, space, texture, value, color, repetition, variety, rhythm, balance, emphasis, and economy are combined to create the strategy of the visual aesthetic that works to compliment the existing rhetorical strategies. The more complete understanding of how visuals are created and how people interpret them will allow for a more complete development of the visual rhetorical approach to communication.

The Rhetoric of Political Conservatism in the Post-Reagan Era  [PDF]
Terri B. Davis
Open Journal of Political Science (OJPS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojps.2016.62013
Abstract: Conservative political thought in the United States has historically been rooted in a compact federalist interpretation of American constitutionalism. This article discusses how the rhetoric of former President Ronald Reagan significantly impact conservative thought and American political discourse in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Reagan rhetorically constructed the national government as an instrument to effect moral and social reform while viewing state and local governments as the harbingers of a nationalized set of Christian values and morals. His rhetoric fused states’ rights with notions of moral progress and human obligation to satisfy three specific political goals: promulgating a states’ rights theory of government; increasing the United States’ position in international trade; and, nationalizing Christian values and morals. The article traces the history of conservative American constitutional thought from the founding through Reagan’s presidency and concludes with a discussion of the ways in which Reagan’s rhetoric continues to impact political discourse in the twenty-first century.
The Rhetoric of Begin: Leadership in Changing Times  [PDF]
David Schwartz
Open Journal of Leadership (OJL) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojl.2016.53008
A precise examination of Menachem Begin’s speeches and history over the years reveals that Begin’s rhetoric constituted a political instrument that he knew to change according to the circumstances. Begin’s rhetoric was controversial, as he went from the leader of a terrorist organization, was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize, and was the Prime Minister who signed the peace treaty with Egypt. This quality study claims that begin’s rhetoric is integral part of his personality and of his leadership. The assumption is that like a typical politician his leadership changed according the winds of times. His charisma and transformational leadership made him a great leader. His rhetoric constituted just instrument for justification his political actions. Begin was revealed to be pragmatic, in contrast to the militant images that his political rivals attempted to affix to him.
Demystifying the International Criminal Court (ICC) Target Africa Political Rhetoric  [PDF]
Torque Mude
Open Journal of Political Science (OJPS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojps.2017.71014
Abstract: The ongoing debate on the ICC’s selective application of international criminal law targeting Africans has had negative implications on the international court and the law it applies. As a consequence of the political rhetoric that the ICC targets Africa, African leaders and their sympathisers have tended to view the court with contempt and some have expressed intentions to withdraw their membership of the court. Against this background, this paper examines the argument that the ICC targets Africa which amounts to an affront to international criminal law and its objective to end impunity to achieve international justice. The conclusion drawn from this study is that the assertion that the ICC targets Africa is a mere political rhetoric that warrants demystification. It is a political rhetoric advanced by African leaders to manipulate their way out of the responsibility to be accountable to international criminal law. Furthermore, the notion that the court targets Africans lacks substantive credibility as it ignores several structural and technical underpinnings such as the jurisdictional triggers, the role of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and other functional modalities that guide the operation of the court. Data for this paper were gathered from journal articles, organisational reports and documents, newspapers, case reports, treaties and other online sources.
La dimensión política de la retórica griega
Gerardo Ramírez Vidal
Rétor , 2011,
Abstract: Rhetoric in Classical Greece, understood as a natural skill, practice, teaching or theory, was closely related to politics in the three domains where it was at home: courts, assemblies, and the most important, national holidays. In Hellenistic and Roman Greece, the art of persuasion became adapted to new social and cultural conditions. In spite of the changes in its political functions, Rhetoric retained its importance in Greek communities until the end of the ancient world. Afterwards, political affairs left their place to religious and philosophical issues. Finally, towards the end of the 19th century, rhetorical teaching was abolished in the European Universities. However, in the second half of the 20th century, Rhetoric was back again. In spite of the different way in which Rhetoric and politics relate to each other today as compared to their relationship in classical Greece, the ancient experience is useful to understand the modern phenomenon.

Monteagudo, Ricardo;
Trans/Form/A??o , 2002, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-31732002000100004
Abstract: cicero is one of the sources of texts of hellenistic thought in the period of the roman republic. he updates greek philosophy and, at the same time, recognizes the superiority of roman right. the practical and bellicose roman spirit took distance from philosophy, but new problems demanded reflection. in political and judicial disputes, rhetoric was an essential instrument. the 20th century revival of rhetorical studies allowed some commentators to reconsider the relationship between rhetoric and philosophy, leading to new reflections about cicero and the historiography of philosophy.
