Aristotle on Advertising: Rhetoric (the Good Kind!) for Writing and Communication Strategy (Skillshare)
"Rhetoric” has gotten a bad name. Today, it refers only to misinformation, untruthful communications, or propaganda. But “classical rhetoric” is actually the study of effective writing and speaking—and it’s been around for more than 2,500 years since the time of Aristotle and ancient Greece. The tactics and strategies of classical rhetoric that are presented in this class are a powerful means of improving business communications, as well as general writing and presentation skills.
