I. A. Richards

1893 - 1979

Richards rejected the views of Cicero and other traditional rhetorical theorists. He thought that they were just a collection of rules for communication that were largely extraneous for the twentieth century. He wrote in The Philosophy of Rhetoric that the study of rhetoric should be "a philosophic inquiry into how words work in discourse" .
