In this book, the author wants to explore how a community expresses itself because it’s physical appearance. The author of “City of Rhetoric” beliefs that how communities are set up then how the people write, speak, and act changes. In my opinion, this is true, I recently moved to the States and I thought everyone was going to be the same but having the time to explore DC I have noticed how people behave differently. The author wants to use as examples of different communities to prove this and he intends to figure this out by looking for space of dialogue and silence between what builds a community. Basically, David Fleming uses an urban project to proof how the concerns of modern political philosophy and rhetorical education is built and affected.
