Grossmont College Group of Eloquent Symbols of a Philosophy Discussion


Find a rhetorical “artifact” from the world, something that’s making an argument through language—written, spoken, or visual language designed to bring about change in a reader’s, listener’s, or viewer’s ideas, beliefs, attitudes, or actions. You may choose an example from the list above, but I encourage you to be creative in your search for original rhetorical “artifacts” from the world, especially those that make subtle attempts at persuasion. In fact, I will award five extra credit points to the student who finds the most creative rhetorical artifact.
