Bereits Uta Lindgren, die auch den Artikel über die „Artes liberales“ im Tübinger Rhetoriklexikon verfasste, spricht im Vorwort ihres Buches „Die Artes Liberales in Antike und Mittelalter“ von „[…] Skrupel, die einen im Angesicht eines so gigantischen Themas befallen […]“ können. Doch ebenso wie bei Lindgren, soll auch in dieser Arbeit durch sinnvolle Ein- wie Abgrenzung des Stoffes eine wissenschaftliche Untersuchung möglich gemacht werden, anstatt „[...] ein Klagelied anzustimmen, zumal wenn guy ohnehin weder zu dichten noch zu singen vermag.“
So ist in der aktuellen Bildungsdebatte einzugestehen, dass dieses Thema nicht plötzlich aus dem Nichts auftauchte, sondern anscheinend Erkenntnisse in Vergessenheit gerieten, die unserer modernen Gesellschaft aus der Antike hätten vorliegen können. Genau diese Gegebenheit hat das besondere Interesse an dieser Hausarbeit geweckt. Bevor guy sich der Aufgabenstellung widmen kann, welche Rolle die Rhetorik im Rahmen der „Artes liberales“ spielt, ist es sinnvoll in Punkt 2 zunächst eine Klärung des Begriffes unter Berücksichtigung des terminologischen wie mythologischen Hintergrundes vorzunehmen. Ist das Wesen dieser geklärt, stellt sich nun die Frage: „Wie viele und welche Fächer umfasste dieser Wissenschaftskanon gewöhnlicherweise und wie wurden diese eingeteilt?“
Hierauf soll Punkt three „Die Fächereinteilung der Artes liberales“ eine Antwort geben. Schon zum dortigen Zeitpunkt der Arbeit wird eine Eingrenzung des Stoffgebietes auf die „gewöhnliche“ Darstellung der „Artes liberales“ erfolgen müssen.

In der Schlussbemerkung wird nochmals Stellung bezogen zu der in der Einleitung anklingenden Problematik der aktuellen Bildungspolitik und der Rolle der „Artes liberales“ hierbei

Schneider reconstructs the pedagogical theories and rhetorical practices constructed and hired at Highlander.

Rhodes explores how those radical women’s texts were silenced in modern rhetoric and composition, and compares their paintings to that of latest on-line activists, discovering that either aspect to a “network literacy” that blends ever-shifting identities with ever-changing applied sciences on the way to take motion. eventually, Rhodes argues, the articulation of radical feminist textuality can profit either scholarship and lecture room because it situates writers as rhetorical brokers who can write, withstand, and eventually act inside a community of discourses and identifications.
