Chapter Summary

This chapter views that there is considerably more going on in the rhetoric of Eunomia than there is in the surface meaning of the work, to the extent that such a distinction can be upheld at all. It sketches the main themes upon which Philip Allott imagines his theory of society and the manner in which they progress, before proceeding to an examination of the rhetorical techniques that he seeks to make use of in order to infuse his claims with authority. The rhetorics of Allotts work combines to create certain expectations, certain credulity even, on the part of the reader, to draw his attention towards certain possibilities and to blinker him to others. The examination of Allotts remarkable theory has been overwhelmingly critical in character; that it has glossed over or simply ignored the many and varied qualities that it possesses.

Keywords: Eunomia; Philip Allott; rhetorics
