Seeing Is Believing: Using the Rhetoric of Virtual Reality to Persuade
AbstractVirtual reality, media at its most vivid, is entering our lives and changing how we think and act through specific rhetorical techniques.

Through empirical, experiential, and theoretical lenses, this article describes the rhetorical mechanisms often present in virtual reality and urges the importance of understanding the subtle emotional and often manipulative aspects of virtual rhetoric.
