rhetoric

Monday 14 November 2005

Logic is a science of language, and so is rhetoric. While logic is the science of propositions and demonstration, rhetoric is the science of persuasion. It is less concerned with the truth of a proposition as it is concerned with using language, gesture, argument, and emotion to persuade other people of a truth or an opinion.
