On page 15 of Brian Vicker' s Classical Rhetoric in English Poetry, Fr. Ong has an annotation that takes issue with Vicker's understanding of rhetoric and notes that Vickers doesn't consider rhetoric's relationship to culture or psyche.

I also see that Ong has extensively marked up the memory section of Stephen Tyler's The Unspeakable: Discourse, Dialogue, and Rhetoric in the Postmodern World. I've found this to be a thought provoking discussion of memory and it's somewhat heart warming to see that Fr. Ong did as well. I can't wait until I can actually spend time looking at these annotations rather than just noting their existence.
