Rhetorical Knowledge in Legal Practice and Critical Legal Theory

Excerpt

It seems that since our globe, as is said, has shrunk, we have acquired
more problems regarding justice than we had in previous generations
when nations, countries, and continents were isolated…. Today more
than ever, the questions of justice are global.

If the golden rule or Kant's Imperatives are the most generally accepted
precepts concerning individual justice, then Perelman's question re
emerges: how can the general be translated into the concrete and indi
vidual?

We must realize that we will be required repeatedly to return to the
starting point of every discussion and re-argue what had been previ
ously determined.

Mieczyslaw Maneli
Perelman's New Rhetoric as Philosophy and
Methodology for the Next Century

Gadamerian hermeneutics is not just a parochial ingredient of Continen
tal thought, but an important building stone in the emerging global city
and in a dialogically construed cultural ecumenicism.

For Gadamer it is chiefly the multiplicity (or multiculturalism) of
Europe which harbors the continent's legacy and promise for the world.
