Rhetorica: A Journal of the History of Rhetoric


Rhetorica: A Journal of the History of Rhetoric


Published for The International Society for the History of Rhetoric by the
University of California Press

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.
