Abstract

The paper approaches current problems pertaining to university students' written and spoken communication by suggesting how thought and expression are rhetorical in nature. It then proposes that ideas in Chaim Perelman and Lucie Olbrechts-Tyteca's The New Rhetoric, and Perelman's The Realm of Rhetoric, are consistent with the view presented and suggests that they can serve as a means of developing the capacity for reasoned communication through an emphasis on the individual student's relation to discourse practices and communities.
