Chiastic Thought and Culture

A Reading of Claude Lévi-Strauss

This chapter entertains a special relationship with the Rhetoric Culture project as a whole in as much as the dynamic at the heart of this project is itself chiastic. One of the characteristics of Rhetoric Culture theory is the reversibility of its "critical moments" (see the introduction to this volume). In as much as all social and cultural practices are linguistically mediated, they are at least in part tributary to rhetoric. One may therefore turn to rhetoric to make sense of these practices and shed light on the dynamics that underpin them. The need to interrelate anthropology and rhetoric arises, in this respect, out of the imbrication of linguistic and social practices, rhetoric and praxis. Rhetoric, construed as an art (technê) of persuasion, is in essence a form of agency theory.
