Abstract

My chapter is a critical analysis on how rhetoric as an academic discipline as well as a discursive strategy influenced knowledge production in the Early Modern Period in Europe between anthropological approach (Giordano Bruno) and epistemological approach (René Descartes). The chapter then compares the Early Modern strategies to modern forms of engagement who share a remarkable similarity with those around 1600 (here exemplified with the inaugural lectures at the College de France by Roland Barthes' and Pierre Bourdieu's).
