Historical Rhetorics/Rhetoric's Medieval Resurgence
Chapter Eight: Rhetoric's Medieval Resurgence (?)
The title for this week isn't a statement it is a question. Do what extent does Augustine promote rhetoric? The answer to this question, I believe, will be imbricated in the Q Question, to whether rhetoric refers to a reality and transmits Truths already in existence or instantiates reality and transforms our experience of it.
