Rhetoric and Politics

The domain of rhetoric: the probable, opinion, belief…the stuff of politics.

Aristotle’s Zoon Politicon

Political Style


Deliberative rhetoric l.jpg
Deliberative Rhetoric

(as opposed to Forensic or epideictic)

Critics of Democracy, from the left and the right agree that deliberation could save the day for democratic institutions. (effective deliberation)

--deliberation instead of focus groups, monologues to empty chambers, or the ‘mischief of factions’

Indeed, most political and legal theorists place Western democracies at a transitional moment--to Delberative Democracy. (remember Athens…)


Deliberative democracy l.jpg
Deliberative Democracy

Political decision making is legitimate insofar as its policies are produced in a process of public discussion and debate in which citizens and their representatives, going beyond mere self-interest, deliberate on their common good.

This presupposes that we all have the same terms and would recognise the same ground rules for debate and rhetoric, that we have a notion of public good

Disagreements about how to deliberate

We’re not in Athens any longer Toto…

  • Representative democracy (aggregate individual expressions of belief)

  • Consensus conferences, citizens juries

  • New media deliberation (online)


The spin offs of deliberation l.jpg
The spin-offs of deliberation

  • Publics and counterpublics (activism)

  • Identification of an increasing number of social ‘risks’: the so-called ‘Risk Society’

  • “Media Panics”

  • Questions about what can be deliberated and what can’t

  • Disagreements about ground rules (again)
