Die Arbeit setzt sich zum Ziel, Pionierarbeit in der Frage zu leisten, inwiefern unterschiedliche rhetorische Strategien in der Performanz durch einen Redner spezifische Performanzmerkmale aufweisen, die sich voneinander unterscheiden. Zu diesem Zweck werden rhetorische Strategien in der Krisenkommunikation differenziert und in ihrer Inszenierung durch einen Redner analysiert. Als praktisches Beispiel fungiert die Plagiatsaffäre um den ehemaligen Verteidigungsminister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg. Die zentrale Herausforderung dieser Arbeit besteht darin, eine rhetorische Untersuchungsmethodik für die examine und Interpretation von Körperausdrucksformen zu entwickeln. Grundlage dafür bilden zwei Kodierungssysteme aus der Verhaltenspsychologie, das ‚Facial motion Coding approach‘ (FACS) von Ekman, sowie das ‚Body motion and posture coding method‘ (BAP) von Dael/Mortillaro/Scherer.

Remer makes a compelling case that Ciceronian values—balancing the ethical and the necessary, prudential reasoning, and decorum—are now not specific basically to the thinker himself, yet are specific of a broader Ciceronian rhetorical culture that runs throughout the historical past of Western political notion post-Cicero, together with the writings of Quintilian, John of Salisbury, Justus Lipsius, Edmund Burke, the authors of The Federalist, and John Stuart Mill.
