John Henry Newman's Rhetoric

Becoming a Discriminating Reader


Jane Britt

This book examines Newman's rhetoric in a number of ways: by rhythm and structure, by principles, states of mind, and methods of thought, by visual analysis and by typology. Rhythm and structure indicate the hidden art of his rhetoric. Principles, states of mind, and methods of thought reveal the deeper basis of his rhetoric. Carl Jung's typology discloses the reasons for agreement and disagreement in communication. Visualization enables the reader to grasp why the usually hidden art of the work has such an impact. Through the unity of these ways of examining Newman's rhetoric, the reader discovers a new organon for reading discriminately not only Newman but other classical and erudite authors.
