Our actions in education, business, and government are no longer guided by conscious ideals, but by entrenched practices that are products of expediency, indolence, and even tyranny. Inveterate and ubiquitous problems abound. Students hate school. Employees dislike their jobs. Professors become disinclined toward teaching. Boredom and procrastination are everywhere. There are promotion requirements (such as scholarly publications by college professors) that promote nothing and benefit none except to move the person into the next nominal category along the spectrum of the organizational ladder. We are plagued with senseless competitive patterns and numerical evaluations that make life a mere matter of "rat race", the winning of which does not uplift us into the sublimity of humanity, but trammel us in the degradation of being "rats". Essays in this book reflect on and search for answers to widespread and inveterate problems that degenerate modern life into mere livelihood. Products in sober solitude rather than in the societal cacophony, most essays in the book were written during the author's doctoral studies.

Interrogates the story of rhetoric promoted in standard historical accounts and reconsiders the relationship between rhetorical theory, practice, and pedagogy. The Viability of the Rhetorical Tradition reconsiders the relationship between rhetorical theory, practice, and pedagogy. Continuing the line of questioning begun in the 1980s, contributors examine the duality of a rhetorical canon in determining if past practice can make us more (or less) able to address contemporary concerns. Also examined is the role of tradition as a limiting or inspiring force, rhetoric as a discipline, rhetoric's contribution to interest in civic education and citizenship, and the possibilities digital media offer to scholars of rhetoric.

Sprachphilosophie, Logik, Linguistik, Semantik, Hermeneutik, Rhetorik, Ästhetik, Poetik - hinter all diesen Disziplinen verbirgt sich für Tzvetan Todorov eine einheitliche Tradition. Er lädt uns ein, den Spuren dieser Tradition zu folgen, von der Antike bis zur Aufklärung, von der Romantik bis zur Gegenwart. Wegweisend bei diesem Gang durch die Jahrhunderte ist der Begriff des Symbols. Todorov gibt uns einen Überblick über die Deutungen, die der Symbolbegriff bei so verschiedenen Autoren wie Aristoteles, Cicero, Quintilian, Augustin, Condillac, Lessing, Diderot, Goethe, Novalis, Moritz, den Gebrüdern Schlegel, Lévy-Bruhl, Freud, Saussure und Jacobson erfahren hat. Die Dichotomien von Zeichen und Symbol, Klassik und Romantik, Rhetorik und Ästhetik erscheinen aus dieser historischen Perspektive in einem neuen Licht. So ist dieses Buch - in der französischen Originalfassung 1977 bei Edition du Seuil erschienen - nicht in erster Linie als Beitrag zur Symboltheorie zu verstehen, sondern als Dokument einer geistesgeschichtlichen Entwicklung, in der zugleich die Konturen einer Geschichte der Semiotik sichtbar werden. Todorov läßt die behandelten Autoren ausführlich zu Wort kommen. Der Leser erhält dadurch Zugang zu einer Fülle von Dokumenten, von denen einige hier zum erstenmal auf deutsch erscheinen.

In the United States, female seminaries and their antecedents, the female academies, were crucial first institutions that played a vital role in liberating women from the "home sphere," a locus that was the primary domain of Euro-American women. The female seminaries founded by Native Americans and African Americans had different founding rationales but also played a key role in empowering women. On the whole, the initial intent of these schools was to prepare women for their proper role in American society as wives and mothers. An unintended effect, however, was to prepare women for the first socially accepted profession for women: teaching. Thus equipped, women played a crucial role in the development of American education at all levels while achieving varying degrees of social justice for themselves and other groups through engagement in the reform movements of their times--including women's suffrage, abolition, temperance, and mental health reform. By recapturing the role religion played in shaping education for women, Welch and Ruelas offer a refreshing take on history that draws on several primary texts and details more than one hundred female seminaries and academies opened in the United States.

Jan Stenger demonstrates the central significance of the Gnomai for constituting the sense of the victory song.

While the study of the history of rhetoric has expanded to include an ever-growing range of rhetorical traditions, lesser-known figures, and under- and un-studied texts, it has continued to exist in the hermetically sealed binary of West and Rest. Rhetorical scholars have begun uncovering the many marginalized rhetorical traditions silenced by the homogenous nature of our histories themselves, reading and writing new histories of the rhetorical tradition through frames from gender to geography. Despite these substantial challenges to the traditionally received history of rhetoric, many voices are still silenced and many spaces are still excluded—voices speaking within the spaces of the less-than-monolithic West itself. This silencing and excluding continues, perhaps, because of assumptions that no texts exist from these marginalized voices or that substantial rhetorical activity was not conducted in these marginalized spaces—regardless of already extant evidence of rhetorical activity as diverse as rural civic ethos in Classical Greece and Etruscan influences on Roman rhetoric or long-standing passive knowledge of scholarly activity in Medieval Andalusia and Ireland. Rhetoric in the Rest of the West attempts to expand the conversation in those gaps in the history of rhetoric by examining the traditions that lost the cultural competition and have been shrouded in the shadow of the rhetorical tradition.
