A narrative of the life of Frederick Douglass, an American slave by Frederick Douglass( Recording )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1845, just seven years after his escape from slavery, the young Frederick Douglass published this powerful account of his life in bondage and his triumph over oppression. The book, which marked the beginning of Douglass's career as an impassioned writer, journalist, and orator for the abolitionist cause, reveals the terrors he faced as a slave, the brutalities of his owners and overseers, and his harrowing escape to the North. It has become a classic of American autobiography. This [volume] includes a chronology of Douglass's life, a thorough introduction by the eminent Douglass scholar John Blassingame, historical notes, and reader responses to the first edition of 1845.-Back cover
Rhetoric and Private Address: Christian Values and the Rhetorical Sensitivity Approach to Interpersonal Communication by Gerald Fulkerson( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In light of rhetorical approaches to interpersonal communication, this paper compares the ethics behind the "rhetorical sensitivity" concept of Roderick Hart and Don Burks and the ethics of Christian communication. Outlined are Hart and Burks' exposition of the characteristics of the rhetorically sensitive person which are then compared to the characteristics of Jesus and Paul as they are presented in the Bible. The main characteristic of rhetorical sensitivity, as it differs from Christian interpersonal values, is then described: the interpersonal rhetor analyzes the situation and selects from his/her repertoire of behaviors those that promise to be maximally adaptive. The paper argues that Hart and Burks would find the Christian perspective too restrictive for optimally effective rhetorical interaction and would allow internal inconsistency in rhetorical discourse in order to achieve desired ends. In comparison, the paper argues that while the Christian ethical system easily accommodates the notion of rhetorical adaptation, it is a deontological, rather than a teleological, approach that explicitly limits both means and ends. Finally, the paper describes the rules-based ethic of Christianity as driven by a concern for the Other, thus clarifying its essential distinction from Hart and Burks' situation ethic, which is driven by a concern for the complexity of the Other.
