Late U. Dallas Professor's 'Magnum Opus' Set for Publication

Cicero speakingUniversity of Dallas announced in a press release that the long-awaited magnum opus of late professor Raymond DiLorenzo will be published posthumously.

DiLorenzo's book, The Human Word, is a "monumental treatment of the history and philosophy of classical rhetoric," according to the University.  Work on the book spanned DiLorenzo's entire career and retirement.

University of Dallas associate professor of English Scott Crider worked to get The Human Word ready for publication.  The Arts of Liberty is publishing the book online, and one chapter will be available each week starting on Saturday, Jan. 18.

According to the University:

"Ray's original intention was to publish the book online, so that it would be available to everyone," said Scott Crider ...

"The Human Word is unusual in that it combines a treatment of both the art and tradition of rhetoric," said Crider. "In the first part, Ray delves into the classical tradition of rhetorical thinking using philosophy and literature. The second part focuses more on the art of rhetoric itself."

"I suspect that, over time, the book will be seen to be one of the most important treatments of the history and philosophy of rhetoric that exists," said Crider.

University of Dallas is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
