Professor emeritus of classics at Rutgers University, William W. Fortenbaugh, has taken the pursuit of teaching the world the history of rhetoric ranges from the early Hellenistic period to the present day, with the release of his book titled Peripatetic Rhetoric After Aristotle.
There has been an increasing interest in ancient rhetoric in recent times, with more people exploring its significance in modern-day society. Consequently, different works have been done to help more people understand Aristotle’s role in Peripatetic Rhetoric and the applicability of the theory today. Unfortunately, many of the available resources are not particularly comprehensive enough to address the concerns of classicists, philosophers, and cultural historians. However, Professor emeritus, William W. Fortenbaugh, has collaborated with David Mirhady to change this narrative with the release of Peripatetic Rhetoric After Aristotle.
Peripatetic Rhetoric After Aristotle looks at the different aspects of Peripatetic Rhetoric, providing new insights into the concept and how it has impacted different cultures across the globe at different eras, including Greece and Rome, the Syrian- and Arabic-speaking worlds, Europe in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and the international scene today.
The book has expectedly caught the attention of different people from all walks of life who are interested in history and how past events have shaped the modern era. Some A-list names that contributed to the work include Maroun Aouad, Lucia Calboli Montefusco, Thomas Conley, Tiziano Dorandi, Lawrence D. Green, Doreen C. Innes, George A. Kennedy, Michael Leff, and Eckart Schutrumpf, all sharing their wealth of knowledge to offer a detailed analysis of the history of rhetoric ranges from the early Hellenistic period to the present day.
Peripatetic Rhetoric After Aristotle is currently available on Amazon in different formats for readers across the globe.
