The Idea of a University: Ep 15

Ep. 15: Rhetoric, pt 1.  (25 min) MP3 Dr. Ron Muller and Mast. Bobby Kinkela discuss the art of rhetoric and how it developed from ancient oration from Aristotle onto the present day.  The main purpose of rhetoric is to explain the good of one’s own position, and so rhetoric is a good tool in itself, but it can be used in sinful ways.  The discussion goes in depth into different rhetorical devices.  Then we start to get into responsible rhetoric.  This is a part 1 of 2 podcast on Rhetoric.
