Through Heidegger: Transcendence and Logos

(p.174) Five Through Heidegger: Transcendence and Logos
Deep Rhetoric

James Crosswhite

University of Chicago Press

This chapter proposes a new rhetoric project that offers an account of reasoned argument as an alternative to violence, a way to undergo and pass through conflicts nonviolently. The purpose of the project is “the justification of the possibility of a human community in the sphere of action when this justification cannot be based on a reality or objective truth.” This project can be clarified and explained more completely by a deep rhetoric—one that is much more considerate to the ethical and communicative dimensions of transcendence and to the theory of argumentation as a theory of justice at the level of transcendence itself. The passage through Heidegger will help to make the break with traditional ways of conceptualizing rhetoric, and the conversation with and critique of Heidegger will provide the context for a philosophical rhetoric.
