Dictionnaire de rhétorique et des figures de style. Lexique, Définition
On pourrait croire que les figures de style sont l’apanage des grands auteurs et des professeurs de français qui prennent plaisir à tourmenter leurs étudiants... Pourtant, chacun de nous emploie quotidiennement plusieurs procédés stylistiques. Sans même y penser, nous agrémentons notre discours de métaphores, de métonymies ou d’ellipses. Figurez-vous que vous avez du style! Figurez-vous que vous avez du style!

SCHOPENHAUER'S 38 STRATAGEMS, OR 38 WAYS TO WIN AN ARGUMENT Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860), was a brilliant German philosopher. These 38 Stratagems are excerpts from "The Art of Controversy", first translated into English and published in 1896. Carry your opponent's proposition beyond its natural limits; exaggerate it. The more general your opponent's statement becomes, the more objections you can find against it. The more restricted and narrow his or her propositions remain, the easier they are to defend by him or her.

The Art of Being Right

The Art of Being Right

The Art of Being Right: 38 Ways to Win an Argument (1831) (Eristische Dialektik: Die Kunst, Recht zu Behalten) is an acidulous and sarcastic treatise written by the German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer in sarcastic deadpan.[1] In it, Schopenhauer examines a total of thirty-eight methods of showing up one's opponent in a debate. He introduces his essay with the idea that philosophers have concentrated in ample measure on the rules of logic, but have not (especially since the time of Immanuel Kant) engaged with the darker art of the dialectic, of controversy. Whereas the purpose of logic is classically said to be a method of arriving at the truth, dialectic, says Schopenhauer, "...on the other hand, would treat of the intercourse between two rational beings who, because they are rational, ought to think in common, but who, as soon as they cease to agree like two clocks keeping exactly the same time, create a disputation, or intellectual contest."

Rhétorique

Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. La rhétorique est l'art ou la technique de persuader, généralement au moyen du langage. La rhétorique est à la fois la science (au sens d'étude structurée) et l'art (au sens de pratique reposant sur un savoir éprouvé, une technique) qui se rapporte à l'action du discours sur les esprits, « bene dicendi scientia » selon les mots de l'orateur romain Quintilien[1]. Selon Ruth Amossy[2] : « telle qu’elle a été élaborée par la culture de la Grèce antique, la rhétorique peut être considérée comme une théorie de la parole efficace liée à une pratique oratoire. » À ses débuts, la rhétorique s'occupait du discours politique oral, avant de s'intéresser de manière plus générale aux textes écrits et surtout aux textes littéraires et dramatiques, discipline nommée aujourd'hui la « stylistique ».

La langue de bois ! Un langage que tout présidentiable sérieux se doit de maîtriser. Eluder les questions embarrassantes, parler pour ne rien dire, brosser l'électeur dans le sens du poil, autant d'exercices dans lesquels la plupart des hommes politiques excelle. Mais la campagne est longue. Générateur de langue de bois

The hypothesis popularly appears in the English language in various figures of speech that imply guaranteed negative reprisal, such as: "You got what was coming to you", "What goes around comes around", and "You reap what you sow". This hypothesis has been widely studied by social psychologists since Melvin J. Lerner conducted seminal work on the belief in a just world in the early 1960s.[1] Research has continued since then, examining the predictive capacity of the hypothesis in various situations and across cultures, and clarifying and expanding the theoretical understandings of just-world beliefs.[2] Emergence[edit] Many philosophers and social theorists have observed and considered the phenomenon of belief in a just world.

Logical Fallacies

An Encyclopedia of Errors of Reasoning The ability to identify logical fallacies in the arguments of others, and to avoid them in one’s own arguments, is both valuable and increasingly rare. Fallacious reasoning keeps us from knowing the truth, and the inability to think critically makes us vulnerable to manipulation by those skilled in the art of rhetoric. What is a Logical Fallacy? A logical fallacy is, roughly speaking, an error of reasoning. Logical Fallacies
A fallacy is a kind of error in reasoning. The alphabetical list below contains 209 names of the most common fallacies, and it provides brief explanations and examples of each of them. Fallacies should not be persuasive, but they often are. Fallacies may be created unintentionally, or they may be created intentionally in order to deceive other people. The vast majority of the commonly identified fallacies involve arguments, although some involve explanations, or definitions, or other products of reasoning. Sometimes the term “fallacy” is used even more broadly to indicate any false belief or cause of a false belief.

Rhetoric

Rhetoric Painting depicting a lecture in a knight academy, painted by Pieter Isaacsz or Reinhold Timm for Rosenborg Castle as part of a series of seven paintings depicting the seven independent arts. This painting illustrates rhetorics. From Ancient Greece to the late 19th century, it was a central part of Western education, filling the need to train public speakers and writers to move audiences to action with arguments.[4] The word is derived from the Greek ῥητορικός (rhētorikós), "oratorical",[5] from ῥήτωρ (rhḗtōr), "public speaker",[6] related to ῥῆμα (rhêma), "that which is said or spoken, word, saying",[7] and ultimately derived from the verb ἐρῶ (erō), "say, speak".[8]

Figure de style

Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Une figure de style, du latin figura, est un procédé d’expression qui s’écarte de l’usage ordinaire de la langue et donne une expressivité particulière au propos. On parle également de figure de rhétorique ou de figure du discours. Si certains auteurs établissent des distinctions dans la portée des deux expressions, l’usage courant en fait des synonymes.
Clé des procédés littéraires Tout ce qui peut se faire dans le domaine des lettres: effet de style, "fleur de rhétorique", forme poétique, type d'argument, artifice romanesque, jeu de mot... se trouve ici; y compris le geste et le dessin accompagnant du texte. Sur les 100 000 façons de communiquer, combien y en eut-il d'identifiées, de nommées, de Cicéron à Joyce, des védas au post-modernisme? En voici quelque 8 000, françaises pour la plupart. Elles ont été classées, comparées, dotées d'exemples. Même inconnues, elles vous sont accessibles: par les exemples, par l'index des termes de leurs définitions, par leurs circonstances d'utilisation, par leurs catégories de classement.
Figure of speech A figure of speech is the use of a word or a phrase, which transcends its literal interpretation. It can be a special repetition, arrangement or omission of words with literal meaning, or a phrase with a specialized meaning not based on the literal meaning of the words in it, as in idiom, metaphor, simile, hyperbole, personification, or synecdoche. Figures of speech often provide emphasis, freshness of expression, or clarity. However, clarity may also suffer from their use, as any figure of speech introduces an ambiguity between literal and figurative interpretation. A figure of speech is sometimes called a rhetorical figure or a locution.
