Rhetoric is the art and practice of constructing and delivering persuasive oral arguments.

Rhetoric was founded in ancient Greece, 2600 years ago.

Rhetoric uses logic and emotion to help deliver cogent, persuasive arguments.

Rhetoric does NOT automatically make the orator correct or give the orator superior knowledge.

Rhetoric is a way to organize and help deliver thoughts, information and knowledge as part of a viewpoint.

Rhetoric can be learned, practiced and refined.

Rhetoric may not convince or persuade, but it should not drive people away.

Rhetoric should stimulate people to think.
