Chapter Summary

This chapter views the final possible step in terms of fleshing out, at the most general and abstract level, the implications for ethics and law of the adoption of post-foundationalism, precisely in terms of this necessary plurivocality. There is a considerable body of work, both within legal theory and beyond, that the author can draw on to this end; in particular, from a movement in the United States that has viewed the concept of rhetoric not, as did Perelman, in its sense of a theory of argumentation given to it by Aristotle, but rather in a much more holistic sense, of the myriad ways in which we use language to create meaning and thus to construct and define our social relations and, ultimately, our communities.

Keywords: argumentation paradigm; Aristotle; ethics; Rhetorical literary; social relations
