Rhetoric from Aristotle to Obama

Hour 1:           It’s all around us, but how recognizable and effective is the language used to persuade us every day? We’ll discuss the history and use of rhetoric this hour with journalist Sam Leith, author of the new book “Words Like Loaded Pistols: Rhetoric from Aristotle to Obama” (Basic Books, 2012).

    The subject of Trivium discussed with Sam Leith comes across to me today as a cooling brain salve, a refresher on Rhetoric allowing us to again define what is happening to us in our over-heated world of 24 hour media communications. Thank you Sam.
