Paradeigmata: Examples and Precedents across Time -13-14/06/2019, (London, England)


go to CALL OF PAPERS


The Ancient Greeks used analogical reasoning as a key cognitive and heuristic device: comparisons of new situations with past events or similar circumstances helped foster their understanding of new situations and created expectations about the potential outcome of their decisions. In classical rhetorical theory, Aristotle describes examples as inductive arguments from analogy, central to logical reasoning (Rh. 1357b 28-30); meanwhile, Anaximenes highlights the role of past actions in lending credibility to a certain statement (Rh. Al. 1429a 22-28). Speakers could indeed resort to past events and historical figures to urge or discourage a course of action, to give post factum justification to certain choices, to comfort an addressee (non tibi hoc soli), or to emphasize the uniqueness of a given situation.


The conference will include talks by Prof. Emmanuelle Danblon (L'Université Libre de Bruxelles), Dr. Jon Hesk (University of St. Andrews), Dr. Kathryn Tempest (University of Roehampton).
