Rhetoric, Truth, and the Work of Trope

The main body of this chapter will consist of three parts, the second of which is an antidote to the first, and the third of which explains why. In the first part I will play the part of the gadfly, expressing certain reservations I have about the Rhetoric Culture project. I am in full agreement with what I take to be one of the project's main aims: to overcome the limits of previous understandings of discourse that give pride of place to its truth-functional aspects and devalue others as mere rhetoric. But, for reasons I will argue in the first part of the chapter, I think it would be counterproductive to try to address this problem by simply reversing the terms of the opposition and calling for a revaluation of the rhetorical over the truth-functional.
