Summary/Abstract: The text examines the radical change, which Paul de Man offers in the understranding of rhetoric. However, this change could be detected only in the process of a careful reading, because De Man doesn’t develop it info a theoretical construction, doesn,t argue a new project of rhetotic. In De Man,s texts, rhetoric is not some specific language usage, as it has been regarded ever since Antiquity. It turns out that what De Man calls „rhetoric“ is the place where language makes us absorbed in the infinite in our eyes regeneration and segmentation of its constituents, which we can affect in no way. At the end of the article we draw some conclusions from this concept of rhetoric, presenting non-traditional De Man’s interpretations of the autonomy of the subject, literature, and literary criticism.
