Korean Rhetoric: Historical Overview and Conceptual Insights

Iolanda PRODAN

Abstract


This essay critically examines Korean rhetoric and argumentation, its sources, historical evolution, and conceptual insights as constructed inthe journalisticand academic discourses before and after the liberation of Korean peninsula in 1945. After a brief survey of the Western and Eastern academic debates on (East) Asian rhetoric and argumentation, the essay brings into focus the relationship between culture, on one hand, rhetoric and argumentation, on the other hand, as well as the South Korean endeavors to define and employ concepts such as rhetoric, discourse, and public debate departing from Eurocentric theoreticalperspectives.

Keywords
