Abstract

This panel examines Scott R Stroud's "Kant and the Promise of Rhetoric" (Pennsylvania State University Press, 2014). This important work takes on the uninterogated presupposition that Kant merely rejected rhetoric and tells the other side of the story-that Kant actually is quite amenable to rhetoric and communication, undergirded by a moral framework, after all. This essential work is the first book-length treatment of the communication and rhetorical theory in Kant's work, and helps us to uncover further unexamined possibilities at the intersection between philosophy, communication, and rhetoric.
