“Rhetoric is the counterpart of good judgment,” claimed Aristotle. “Rhetoric is the primary a part of good judgment rightly understood,” Martin Heidegger concurred. “Rhetoric is the common type of human verbal exchange,” opined Hans-Georg Gadamer. But in Deep Rhetoric, James Crosswhite gives a groundbreaking new conception of rhetoric, person who builds a definitive case for an figuring out of the self-discipline as a philosophical undertaking past elementary argumentation and is totally conversant with the advances of the New Rhetoric of Cha├»m Perelman and Lucie Olbrechts-Tyteca.
Chapter through bankruptcy, Deep Rhetoric develops an figuring out of rhetoric no longer most effective in its philosophical measurement but additionally as a method of guiding and undertaking conflicts, reaching justice, and figuring out the human situation. Along the way in which, Crosswhite restores the normal dignity and significance of the self-discipline and illuminates the twentieth-century resurgence of rhetoric amongst philosophers, in addition to the position that rhetoric can play in long run discussions of ontology, epistemology, and ethics.
