11/23/2021 Master’s students of the Faculty of Journalism acted as speakers on “The Art of Eloquence”. Mykhailo Tymchyshyn: “People have respected power since ancient times. When strength was superior to skill, strength was treated with caution. To the force behind which the weapon stands – with fear. However, in some places there was another type of force – the art of speech, the ability to resolve conflict unarmed, without bloodshed. This was called eloquence. This concept has borne fruit: diplomacy, writing, oratory, even politics… “. Sofiya Vytivska: “Every successful performance is followed by careful preparation. If we work well on the text and honestly complete the five steps – choosing a topic, selecting information, making a plan, writing and editing the text – our speech will have a great chance of success. ” Anzhelika Vinnichenko: “Socrates taught to know a person through his language. Why? Because by the way a person speaks, how he thinks, it is possible to understand how intellectually developed he is and what his inner world is. Hence his aphorism: “Conspiracy to see you.” Natalia Belzetska: “B. Pascal said that eloquence is the art of speaking in such a way that those to whom we turn listen not only without difficulty, but also with pleasure. In ancient times, a skilled speaker was considered to be a person who has good diction, pronounces words clearly and loudly, knows how to use artistic means and, most importantly, knows how to persuade. Eloquence can be divided into: political eloquence: political speech, report, speech, review, conversation; academic eloquence: scientific report, scientific report, scientific lecture, abstract, speech at a seminar, conversation; courts of eloquence; church eloquence; social and domestic eloquence… ». Christina Mural: “The sound of the voice, the eyes and the whole look of the speaker contain no less eloquence than his words (François de La Rochefoucauld).”
