Students gain conceptual framework for evaluating and practicing persuasive writing and speaking in a wide range of settings and in both written and visual media.

The radical rhetoric of the English Deists : the discourse of skepticism, 1680-1750 by James A Herrick( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Radical Rhetoric of the English Deists illuminates the major battlefields of a rhetorical war waged for the religious mind of Britain and eventually of Europe and the colonies. Focusing on the works of lesser-known but highly influential Deists - Charles Blount, John Toland, Thomas Chubb, Thomas Woolston, Jacob Ilive, and Peter Annet - whose radically controversial spirit and willingness to absorb enormous personal risks made Deist controversy so intriguing and consequential, James A. Herrick examines the long polemic between the English Deists and the Church of England that marked the years between 1680 and 1750. He contends that this sweeping critique of traditional Christian thought owes its lasting impact to the rhetorical acumen, textual resources, and iconoclastic motivation of skilled controversialists who sought nothing less than the destruction of Christianity

After the genome : a language for our biotechnological future by James A Herrick( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Biotechnological advancements during the last half-century have forced humanity to come to grips with the possibility of a post-human future. The ever-evolving opinions about how society should anticipate this biotechnological frontier demand a language that will describe our new future and discuss its ethics. After the Genome brings together expert voices from the realms of ethics, rhetoric, religion, and science to help lead complex conversations about end-of-life care, the relationship between sin and medicine, and the protection of human rights in a post-human world. With chapters on the past and future of the science-warfare narrative, the rhetoric of care and its effect on those suffering, black rhetoric and biotechnology, planning for the end of life, regenerative medicine, and more, After the Genome yields great insight into the human condition and moves us forward toward a genuinely humane approach to who we are and who we are becoming"--Publisher's description

The making of the new spirituality the eclipse of the Western religious tradition by James A Herrick( Recording )

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

A massive shift in Western religious attitudes has taken place almost without our noticing it. The Judeo-Christian tradition of Western culture has slowly but steadily been eclipsed by a new way of viewing spirituality. This shift has been in the making for some three hundred years. [In this book, the author] tells the story of how the old view has been dismantled and a new one created not primarily through academic or institutional channels but by means of popular religious media - books, speeches, magazines and pamphlets, as well as movies, plays, music, radio interviews, television programs and websites.-Just jacket
