Rendez-vous with Rhetoric: New Translations and Commentary on the Writings of Chaïm Perelman and Lucie Olbrechts-Tyteca

Preparation for publication of twenty-five articles from the New Rhetoric Project of Chaïm Perelman (1916-1984) and Lucie Olbrechts-Tyteca (1926-1994); translated from French to English and annotated, then disseminated in both a print volume and an open access website. (24 months)

This project focuses on the New Rhetoric Project [NRP] of Chaïm Perelman (1916 -1984), a Belgian Jew, who alone, and in collaboration with Lucie Olbrechts-Tyteca (1926 -1994), wrote 350 books, book chapters, essays outlining a vision of argumentation as an answer to the post-war “crises of reason,” offering a new rhetoric to redeem reason and civil society in the wake of war and genocide. This project will provide a new annotated translation, with commentaries, of 25 of Perelman and Olbrechts-Tyteca’s most significant essays from the NRP corpus, which have yet to be translated from French into English.
