Which is to say, cultural action is always doing something to someone for some purpose. Traditionally, rhetoric has been introduced as the arts of persuasion, but there is also an alternative lineage of rhetoricians who prefer a more inclusive definition of rhetoric as any communicative action that moves, incites, or produces social effects of any sort (Carrithers 2009:6; Gross and Kemmann 2005).
