Abstract

The purpose of the study was to determine the extent to which the rhetorical works of Edward Tyrrell Channing encompasses the same philosophical, practical, and ethical viewpoints as those of Hugh Blair. The findings reveal that Channing's rhetoric reflects the work of Blair in that they both view rhetoric as (1) a comprehensive art, (2) a functional art, and (3) as an art that is based upon the character of the artist. These similarities, considered jointly, constitute a significant reflection. In a larger sense, the findings reveal that Edward T. Channing is reflective of the same "cultural community" as is Hugh Blair.
