Sacred Sites in Ancient Greece 2007: The Art of Aristotle's Rhetoric
Rebecca A. Landwehr
Dr. Steven Reschly and Prof. Martha L. Rose, Faculty Mentors

For Greece in the 5th and 4th century BCE, communication was vital to maintain a nation. The most used and most effective form of public communication was the art of rhetoric. Aristotle is credited with organizing this school of thought in Athens during his time. Throughout his lifetime, Aristotle developed a passion for the arts. The culmination of his written work is known as the Corpus Aristotelicum. His Rhetoric provides guidelines for not only students of rhetoric in ancient Athens, but also for the modern student of communication. This paper details Aristotle's rules for persuading an audience, as well as the application of rhetoric in the modern sense of the word.
