GPS2 Flyer, 20 Sep 2017. Presentational enthymeme. An example in shared values, again. Framed using the metaphor of a GPS. Logos at work in the divided arrow; the ethical argument is capped by the silhouette of the corporate tie. I'm not sure what to make of the superscript 2 in the title (ethos); the dotted wandering lines with arrows; the tension between the split arrow leading up and over, while the list reads down and to a definite ending point; the HUGE map-marker icons indicating workshop times; the non-parallel wording of the workshop topics.

Getting Started



A definition of rhetoric
A modest but pragmatic, easy-to-hang-onto definition of rhetoric from Stoner and Perkins:

The art and science of creating and analyzing "messages that rely on verbal and nonverbal symbols that more or less intentionally influence social attitudes, values, beliefs, and actions." (6)

Elements of the rhetorical situation in detail
  • immediate occasion
    • exigence
    • issue
  • types of discourse that can be used to address the situation
    • judicial - to make judgements on the past
    • deliberative - to consider for the future
    • epideictic - to praise or blame, celebrate, in the present
  • forum and genre in that forum
  • historical and cultural context in which the immediate occasion exists
    • presuppositions are part of this cultural context that are (more or less) shared by rhetor and listener
