Topic: Aristotle believed that “rhetoric is the counterpart of dialectic.”
Outline Aristotle’s definition of
rhetoric as it relates to dialectic (you may want to revisit the chart on page 71 in the Herrick
text), and identify the role rhetoric plays in our present-day political process. Incorporate a
brief discussion of Aristotle’s three species of rhetoric (Aristotle, pp. 46-51), and address
ethical and social responsibility as they relate to justice.
