Summary/Abstract: A starting point of this discussion is the death of the rhetoric proclaimed by philosophy. Since it seems to be the death of the republican art of eloquence itself, which is that grid through which the ideas of Subject, Language and Power escape through, and which forms, according to Roland Bart “a unified network, an artifact, which will allow us to see rheto¬ric as a skillfully assembled machine, a scheme of operations, “a programme“ producing discourse”. Confirming the power of the probable but convincing argument is also the literary educational discourse, produced by the complicity of rhetoric and literary history: logorrhea, where everybody speaks but literature is silent.
