COMP 2 WEEK 1Taking a Closer Look at the Five Canons of Rhetoric

Description (1000 words)This week we are going to familiarize ourselves with the western, ancient origins of Rhetorical Theory. As we move through our chapter readings and assigned media, we will begin to craft connections between what what Aristotle and the great Sophists have to do with argument today.Particularly when we think of “making argument,” we should be considered what comes to mind.
