The current Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) knowledge is designed and developed from Western thinking, neglecting the non-Western rhetorical and cultural situation that determines or at least informs users in Non-Western settings to react to the computer technology. In those Non-Western countries with communal and collective ways of living and communication, HCI needs to be responsive to these people's need. This research is to propose new approach to create better engagement in HCI through rhetoric as a practice for people from the Non-Western community.
