Using "Telogology" to Understand and Respond to the Holocaust
Schwartzman, Roy
College Student Journal, v43 n3 p897-909 Sep 2009
This essay uses primary source publications from Nazi Germany to explore how anti-Semitism developed and intensified into a genocidal logic. Understanding how this intensification could occur long before the networks of concentration camps or World War II arose could reveal how language paves a path to genocide. Using the concepts of telos and logology garnered from Kenneth Burke enables the rhetorical logic of anti-Semitism to unfold and become subject to disruption.
