ABSTRACT

At present, the public interest and studies related to rhetoric are increasing day by day. Though rhetoric has been developed both in the East and the West in parallel, the aspects of its development are different from each other. In the West,centered on Europe, a variety of studies have been actively conducted on the basis of long tradition of rhetoric from the days of Aristotle in ancient Greece and to the present day. On the other hand, China, who represents the East, also has maintained her long tradition of ancient rhetoric. Modern rhetoric was emerged as an academic subject in China in 1938 ‐‐ quite late compared with the West ‐‐ when Chen Wangdao published An Introduction to Rhetoric; from that time on, the basic framework of modern Chinese rhetoric had been set up, establishing serious academic systems. Nowadays, Chinese rhetoric is making up for its idiosyncrasy by dint of conducting studies on the theories of rhetoric and exchanging ideas with other academic fields,also providing other investigators in closely‐related academic subjects with a breakthrough that allows them to overcome their academic constraints. The number of the books and papers that have been published in Korea in relation to Chinese rhetoric over the last 5 years in the 2000s is not so big. However, they can be regarded as remarkable achievements compared with the research achievements accrued over the past a few decades. Given the huge scale of communication going on between nations, people, and academics, the studies on Chinese rhetoric in Korea are expected to prevail in the future. Consequently, it is high time that the more active exchange with local Chinese scholars be highly necessary.
