7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mads Hojlyng on May 12, 2006
Format: Paperback
This is a difficult book to review. Farrell's command of his subject is awe-inspiring and the argument complicated enough to warrant several reads. The central project of the book is a unification of Aristotelean philosophy on practical reason (phronesis) and Habermasian theory on proper public adress. What Farrell attempts is nothing less than a contemporary foundational philosophy of rhetoric in direct opposition to post-modern critics of "reason" (Foucault and Baudrillard are mentioned). His vision is of a republican political culture where rhetoric creates public character and ultimately enables community. The best parts of the book are the many readings of great and small rhetorical exchanges. Better than the sometimes impenetrable (though always erudite) philosophical passages, they convince that rhetorical culture is a possibility, and perhaps even a dessirable one.
