Language holds a dual identity: it is both an art as well as a science, with each word expressing a unique meaning. And when words are arranged with specific purpose to persuade, or to communicate ideologies, language acquires yet another facet of identity--that of rhetoric.
Rhetorica, published quarterly for the International Society for the History of Rhetoric, includes articles, book reviews and bibliographies that examine the theory and practice of rhetoric in all periods and languages and their relationship with poetics, philosophy, religion and law. The official languages of the Society, and of the journal, are English, French, German, Italian, Latin, and Spanish, with articles and features corresponding.
If you crave complete grasp of, or are merely fascinated by, the power and politics of oration, each page of Rhetorica will fulfill.
