Rhetoric as philosophy : the humanist tradition by Ernesto Grassi( Book )

25 editions published between 1980 and 2001 in English and Italian and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By going back to the Italian humanist tradition and aspects of earlier Greek and Latin thought, Ernesto Grassi develops a conception of rhetoric as the basis of philosophy. Grassi explores the sense in which the first principles of rational thought come from the metaphorical power of the word. He finds the basis for his conception in the last great thinker of the Italian humanist tradition, Giambattista Vico (1668-1744). He concentrates on Vico's understanding of imagination and the sense of human ingenuity contained in metaphor. For Grassi, rhetorical activity is the essence and inner life of thought when connected to the metaphorical power of the word. Professor Grassi connects rhetoric with the power of language to bring the starting points for thought into being. This power of speech is at the basis of the philosophical and rational search for truth

Grassi quiso confrontar su experiencia de europeo con la de las formas latinoamericanas de vida, guiado siempre por la duda que germinaba en su espíritu acerca de la validez universal de las categorías de la historicidad y de la técnica en la Europa moderna. Que dichas categorías reivindican universalidad es un hecho evidente. Pero es legítima su universalización, su imposición en todo el planeta? Los orígenes de esta duda están en la reflexión del autor acerca de la universalidad de la conciencia histórica europea y de la objetividad científica de que tanto se enorgullece el hombre moderno. Relato autobiográfico-filosófico
