Class Description: Definitions of rhetoric vary in the classical writers, but adapting one of them, with a peculiarly Christian backdrop and understanding, provides us with our working definition of rhetoric: "the art of a good man speaking well." In this class, students learn the "art" of lining up of ethos, pathos, and logos. Besides these three, this book also covers the five canons of rhetoric, fallacies, the composition of arguments, copiousness, and presentation, along with readings from the classical masters of the art of rhetoric.
