The new rhetoric : a treatise on argumentation by Chaïm Perelman( Book )

46 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in English and held by 1,159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume treats those explicit and implicit beliefs that are used in persuasion, recognizing the middle ground between absolute proof and arbitrary reason-giving. The good orator both is good at persuasion and persuades towards the good (scientia bene dicendi, 25, from Quintilian). The volume is comprehensive on its general level, and it carries the style and precision of a textbook, using examples copiously in order to analyze the rhetorical strategies of the prose
The idea of justice and the problem of argument by Chaïm Perelman( Book )

30 editions published between 1963 and 1977 in English and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book comprises a series of studies devoted to an analytic examination of reasoning in the field of conduct. The first is analysis of the idea of justice undertaken in a spirit of positivism; the series continues in a different vein necessitated by compelling obligation the author found himself under to work out a logic of value judgments. This logic is in fact the Rhetoric and Topics of antiquity: the author's "Traité de l' Argumentation (Paris, 1958) gave this new life, and the present work demonstrates its philosophical importance

From metaphysics to rhetoric by Michel Meyer( Book )

By the question in its being an answer, if only in a circumstantial (i. e. inessential) manner. One indeed must question oneself in order to remember, says Plato, but the dialectic, which would be scientific, must be something else even if it remains a play of question and answer. This contradiction did not escape Aristotle: he split the scientific from the dialectic and logic from argumentation whose respective theories he was led to conceive in order to clearly define their boundaries and specificities. As for Plato, he found in the famous theory of Ideas what he sought in order to justify knowledge as that which is supposed to hold its truth only from itself. What do Ideas mean within the framework of our approach? In what consists the passage from rhetoric to ontology which leads to the denaturation of argumentation? When Socrates asked, for example, "What is virtue?", he thought one could not answer such a question because the answer refers to a single proposition, a single truth, whereas the formulation of the question itself does not indicate this unicity. For any answer, another can be given and thus continuously, if necessary, until eventually one will come across an incompatibility. Now, to a question as to what X, Y, or Z is, one can answer in many ways and nothing in the question itself prohibits multiplicity. Virtue is courage, is justice, and so on
