An Ideal Critic: Ciceronian Rhetoric and Contemporary Criticism

An Ideal Critic: Ciceronian Rhetoric and Contemporary Criticism

By

The book argues and exemplifies the replacement of philosophy by rhetoric as the more rewarding speech genre for discussing theoretical beliefs. The rhetorical writings of Cicero and Quintilian are carefully sifted and re-organized so as to provide the literary critic with a vocabulary (topicality) for translating recent debates among hermeneutists, speech act theorists, and post-structuralists (Foucault, Bakhtin, Gadamer, Vattimo, Searle, Derrida, and Bloom) into a performative canon of criticism.
