Philosophical Assumptions About the Nature of Reality in "The New Rhetoric."
Lynn, Elizabeth Meagher
This paper attempts to extract and summarize the truth-, fact-, and reality-bases of Chaim Perelman's and Mme. L. Olbrechts-Tyteca's "The New Rhetoric." This paper considers: the four basic factors which the theorist needs to take into account when interpreting "The New Rhetoric"; the descriptive characteristics of the universal audience found scattered throughout "The New Rhetoric" which serve as a key to the authors' conceptions of the reality shared by a speaker and his universal audience; and the way in which the foregoing relate to the authors' direct statements about the nature of reality.
