This is a study of rhetoric interior to the self, it presents insights into the elements of rhetorical tradition, into the social functions of the rhetoric, and into the epistemological, ethical, and psychological processes that are involved in rhetorical practice.
Selecting a small number of figures from the history of rhetoric - including Isocrates, Plato, Aristotle, Francis Bacon, Lord Shaftesbury, Richard Whately, Kenneth Burke, Chaim Perelman and Lucie Olbrechts-Tyteca, George Herbert Mead, and Lev Vygotsky - Nienkamp argues for a "version of the rhetorical self that takes into account both the ways we are formed by and formulate internal and external rhetorics and the ways our physical bodies act as a contributing scene - an agora - for internal rhetoric.
