Rhetoric and Human Consci. has been added to your Cart. While it is a very detailed, comprehensive history of rhetoric it is not well written. There are quite a few typos and the text itself, despite being basically interesting subject material, is quite boring upon presentation

Rhetoric and Human Consci. There are quite a few typos and the text itself, despite being basically interesting subject material, is quite boring upon presentation. I'm glad I returned in time to get my money back because this was very expensive.

For two decades, students and instructors have relied on award-winning author Craig Smith’s detailed description and analysis of rhetorical theories and the historical contexts for major thinkers who advanced them. One is that rhetoric is a response to uncertainty. The modern philosophers, like the naturalists of ancient Greece and the Scholastics who preceded them, tried to end uncertainty by combining the discoveries of science and psychology with rationalism

The latest edition of Rhetoric and Human Consciousness remains a well-researched, accessible examination of rhetorical theory in Western civilization. Smith's in-depth coverage of the major figures who advanced rhetoric is strengthened by his keen analysis of developments in rhetorical theory that resulted from its interaction with other disciplines and the cultures surrounding it. The dialectic between rhetoric and other disciplines (notably philosophy and psychology) illuminate evolving definitions of rhetoric, from myth and display to persuasion and symbolic inducement. Well-chosen, engaging examples demonstrate how rhetoric can find truths, particularly at times when science and reason fail to solve important human crises. Paramount to this well-wrought survey is Smith's ability to show that rhetorical criticism illustrates, verifies, and refines rhetorical theory. Thus, the synergistic relationship between theory and criticism in rhetoric is no different than in other arts.

Chief among the Fourth Edition's enhancements are expanded discussions of the historical context for the creation of rhetorical theory and its use in public address; additional coverage of Isocrates, Cicero, Machiavelli, Kenneth Burke, and Michel Foucault; new material on the rhetoric of civil religion, ideological criticism, constitutive discourse, and feminist rhetorical theory; and many fresh examples. Each chapter ends with questions that sharpen readers' retention of concepts and the ability to apply those to everyday life.

Author was a great professor!
Ballalune
This review is for the Kindle edition only. The formatting is awful: no keyword search, no links in the table of contents that allow you to go directly to a particular chapter, etc. Very disappointed.

The 4th edition adds to were the 3rd left off. A must read for anyone starting or continuing their study of human communication.
