New article in Philosophy & Rhetoric

Philosophy & Rhetoric

Recently I published the article “Slavoj Žižek and Dialectical Sophistics: On the Relationship between Dialectical Philosophy and Philosophical Rhetoric” in the journal Philosophy & Rhetoric. The article constitutes an attempt to approach the problem of so-called post-truth (and the critique against rhetoric that comes with this concept) through a reading of the problem of the sophist in the works of Barbara Cassin and Alain Badiou. The starting point is Slavoj Žižek’s depiction of the ongoing debate between Badiou and Cassin as stained by sexual difference, allowing for an attempt to develop a way out of the dead-end of post-truth through the disavowed truth that sustains the antagonism between philosophy and sophistry.
