Praxis: Brief Rhetoric - 2nd edition

Praxis: Brief Rhetoric (ISBN10: 1598715089; ISBN13: 9781598715088)
ISBN13: 978-1598715088
ISBN10: 1598715089

Summary: Praxis is a truly brief text at only 250 pages, yet it still provides a comprehensive presentation of core rhetorical principles. It informs students of the principles of historical rhetoric, including terms such as ethos, pathos, logos, and kairos, and then applies the concepts to modern issues such as the revolutionary uses of twitter, and climate change. This framework enables students to become critical consumers of the flood of persuasive media that compete for
their attention. Moreover, Praxis encourages students to employ this rhetorical framework of concepts to the creation of their own texts. Each chapter features readings, activities, and assignments, some serious and thought provoking, while others are creative and fun. The key to this text is flexibility. It can be used as a stand-alone rhetoric with limited readings, or in conjunction with other readers such as the Fountainhead Press V Series. Praxis moves the student from theory to practical reason to action!
