1. Lohr, Jeff. Voices on the Horizon: A Theory of Ludic Rhetoric.

Degree: PhD, Communication and Rhetorical Studies, 2019, Duquesne University

Voices on the horizon: A theory of ludic rhetoric begins with the assumption that rhetoric and play offer hope for cooperation and community in a fragmented and divided world. Rhetoric and play share an intellectual trajectory in the history of ideas. The earliest use of the terms rhetor and rhetoric in the Western tradition encouraged playful cooperation. The move toward reason and science during the Enlightenment relegated rhetoric to mere techniques for persuasion and silenced alternative avenues for seeking truth. Reclaiming traditional rhetoric as a meeting place for potential negotiation and cooperation encourages constructive civic discourse. The conclusion of this dissertation proposes that attention to the play of rhetoric in the history of ideas opens the possibility for teaching rhetorical theory as an appreciative praxis for the enrichment of others in discourse and encourages cooperation over consensus. This is ludic rhetoric. Advisors/Committee Members: Ronald C. Arnett, Jean Hardin Fritz, Erik Garrett.
