[Autom. eng. transl.] The foundation of reality and knowledge is non-deductible and unprovable: if it were demonstrable it would no longer be the foundation, but something grounded, the result of a logical justification. Philosophy, because it has entrusted its specificity exclusively to argumentative forms, is now discounting the progressive anxiety in which it has shut itself up. Instead, the cultural tradition of Humanism and the Renaissance imposes rhetoric as a form of mediation between the origin and the historical ways in which it may appear. Rhetoric as a philosophy then says of a viable space still in which the human is told not its abstract and lifeless universality, but the passion that passes through it, the meaning and dignity of its commitment to the world.
