What is the role of rhetoric in influencing people's attitudes and beliefs? How can readers's distinguish between prejudicial and nonprejudicial use of rhetorical devices?


Although prejudice is often defined as a negative attitude, we all have prejudices (biases) toward almost everything we consider. Differences occur in terms of how extreme our bias is and how much it influences our actions — including our language. If we are aware of our biases, we can often minimize them.

I will give you some sources dealing with influencing others, but — since rhetorical devices are not in my area of expertise — I will leave it to you to relate the material to them.
