7 Cole, A. Thomas THE ORIGINS OF RHETORIC IN ANCIENT GREECE
The Johns Hopkins University Press 1991 0801840554 / 9780801840555 Hardcover Near Fine in Fine dust jacket 
Pencilling to rear endpaper else fine. ; Is it fair to judge early Greek rhetoric by the standards of Plato and Aristotle? This text argues that it is not, and yet this is the path taken by current scholarship on the subject. Arguing against this view, this work sees early Greek rhetoric as largely unsystematic efforts to explore, more by means than by precept, all aspects of discourse. Replacing these early text by such treatises as the "Rhetoric" of Aristotle, Cole explains, can only be understood as part of a gradual process, as artistic prose came to be disseminated in written texts and so available in a form that, for the first time, be analyzed, evaluated and closely imitated. ; Ancient Society and History; 191 pages
