|Content||Aristotle, a Greek philosopher, educator, and scientist, wrote Rhetoric, three books on his general theory of the persuasive speech - its philosophy and technique. Book 1 seems to be directed toward the speaker, with instructions to be logical and clear thinking. Book 2 directs the speaker to know his audience, including human nature as well as the specific characteristics of the particular audience being addressed. Book 3 focuses upon the speech itself, paying attention to delivery. |
