The New Rhetoric A Treatise on Argumentation


On the occasion of the publication of the American edition of The New Rhetoric, I would like to extend my warmest thanks to those in the United States who have helped me make my ideas known here or who have facilitated the appearance of this book. I am grateful to Professor Richard P. McKeon of the University of Chicago, who in 1951 recommended to Ethics our first article to appear in America, “Act and Person in Argument.” Mr. Henry W. Johnstone, Jr., was the first person to draw the attention of the American public to our work through his critical article published in Philosophy and Phenomenological Research in 1954. It was through him and Professor Robert T. Oliver, past president of the American Speech Association, that I received a joint invitation from the Departments of Philosophy and Speech at Pennsylvania State University, where I gave a seminar on “The Philosophical Foundation of Argumentation.” Thanks to Professor Oliver, I was able to present my ideas at an annual meeting of the American Speech Association at Denver in 1963. These efforts at collaboration between philosophers and specialists in the techniques of speech and communication were continued in 1964 through a colloquium at Pennsylvania State University on the theme “Philosophy and Rhetoric,” and have culminated in the appearance of a new review, Philosophy and Rhetoric, in 1968, under the editorship of Henry W. Johnstone, Carroll C. Arnold, and Thomas Olbricht. I also wish to thank those colleagues who have been kind enough to invite me to present my ideas at the University of Chicago, Cornell University, Harvard University, and the University of Pennsylvania. The invitation which I received from Carl J. Friedrich, head of the Department of Political Science at Harvard, was preceded by a generous review which he had published in 1962 in the Natural Law Forum. It was through him that I first met the editor of this review,
Professor John T. Noonan, Jr., presently at Berkeley, who published certain of my articles and recommended my work to the University of Notre Dame Press. I wish to thank the director of that press, Miss Emily Schossberger, for taking the risks involved in bringing out a work which is compactly written and demands close study from the very outset. Finally, my sincere thanks go to the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions at Santa Barbara. Mr. John Wilkinson, who is its director of studies on the theme “The Civilization of Dialogue,” has enthusiastically propagated my ideas and has also translated part of the present treatise. But I know that without President Robert M. Hutchins, who supported my efforts and granted a generous subvention for translation, this volume would not have seen the light of day. I wish to thank him sincerely for his support and help.
