    The Recognizability of Recognition: Fragments in the Name of a Not Yet Rhetorical Question.Erik Doxtader - 2015 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 48 (4):379-412.
    The absolute relation of name to knowledge-recognition [Erkenntnis] exists only in God; only there is name, because it is inwardly identical with the creative word, the pure medium of knowledge-recognition [Erkenntnis]. This means that God made things knowable-recognizable [erkennbar] in their names. Man, however, names them according to knowledge-recognition [Erkenntnis]. An act is—in connection with the perfected state of the world—not what happens now or “soon”: a demand cannot demand, or command anything now. They enter disjointedly, in symbolic concepts, into (...)

    Editor's Note: In Transition, a Moment for Gratitude.Erik Doxtader - 2018 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 51 (4):v-vii.
    Anyone who does not simply refuse to perceive decline will hasten to claim a special justification for his own personal existence, his activity and involvement in this chaos. There are as many exceptions for one's own sphere of action, place of residence, and moment of time as there are insights into the general failure. A blind determination to save the prestige of personal existence—rather than, through impartial disdain for its impotence and entanglement, at least to detach it from the background (...)

    Zōon Logon Ekhon: (Dis)possessing an Echo of Barbarism.Erik Doxtader - 2017 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 50 (4):452-472.
    An isolated sentence—aphoristic, not fragmentary—tends to reverberate like an oracular utterance having the self-sufficiency of a communication to which nothing need be added.That is barbarian language you hear.There is no document of culture which not at the same time a document of barbarism.Zōon logon ekhon echoes. It rings, three unpunctuated words filling the air and resounding across the landscape. It reverberates, a fragment heard over and over, almost to the point where it seems to go without saying—almost. It reflects, an (...)

    Addressing animals.Erik Doxtader - 2011 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 44 (1):79-80.
    In identifying himself with language, the speaking man places his own muteness outside of himself, as already and not yet human. There is, perhaps, something barbarous in the assumption of the word. In the ontological equation that aligns the speaking being with the human being there may abide a gesture that can be neither heard nor interpreted. With the logos that we inherit “by nature” and then “by right,” according to Agamben, the cut between the human and the animal is (...)

    Contending with Violent Words; or, The Afterthought of (In)Civility.Erik Doxtader - 2011 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 44 (4):403-423.
    The lost opportunity is overwhelming, an exigence in the full sense—a recollection of that which can only remain forgotten. In the midst of the storm, what to do now? If this is the question with which Walter Benjamin began, in a poem published in 1910 under the pseudonym "Ardor," it is one over which he kept a solemn vigil, rarely letting it slip from view, even as the border closed in the months not long after he rendered Klee's 1920 painting, (...)

    Editor's Note.Erik Doxtader - 2019 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 52 (3):vi-vii.
    With this issue, Philosophy & Rhetoric launches two features. The first is a dedicated Special Section, a space for shorter articles addressed to a specific theme, problem, or question. The second, In Focus, is a book forum in which several scholars take up a recent leading monograph and the author of the monograph offers a reply to their reflections. These new features will appear regularly in coming issues. Individually and together, they seek to encourage directed study and hopefully a bit (...)

    Editor's Note: In the midst of …?Erik Doxtader - 2020 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 53 (3):vi-ix.
    As you well know, the milieu is a notion that only appears in biology with Lamarck. However, it is a notion that already existed in physics.... What is the milieu? It is what is needed to account for action at a distance of one body on another. It is therefore the medium of an action and element in which it circulates.It’s really hard to feel like you’re saving the world when you are watching Netflix from your couch. But if we (...)

    This issue of Philosophy & Rhetoric, a somewhat rare double-issue, features significant and inspiring work that moves in a variety of directions and proceeds in a number of idioms, while also responding directly and indirectly to a complex exigence, though perhaps in a less familiar sense of the term, as what Giorgio Agamben calls a “messianic modality” that “coincides with the possibility of philosophy itself”—exigency as the expression of what remains unforgettable in the midst of all that is no longer (...)

In them, both are open, both being and not being, and so also both becoming and not becoming. And (...)

    The Contemporary possibility of Debate: Introduction.Erik Doxtader - 2019 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 52 (1):47-48.
    Rhetoric and philosophy have long attended to the conditions, dynamics, and relative benefits of debate. Antiquity's deep concern for the relationship between debate and city-serving pedagogy remains an open question. In part through a shared commitment to argumentation theory, rhetoric and philosophy have agreed on and sparred over debate's constitutive and performative role in truth seeking, critical understanding, and collective action. With different and shared idioms, they have touted debate as a fundament of public life, investigated how debate may productively (...)

    What cannot be said?Erik Doxtader - 2022 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 55 (1):1-3.
    What cannot be said? The question presses, as there are no words, or no fitting words, or no words that make sense let alone do justice, all perhaps in the face of demands to speak. And, as voice collapses in the midst of the violence that confounds reference, degrades language, imposes silence, and enforces repression—what cannot be said may turn on privation, the grounds, incentives, and intentions of expression that are banished, disappeared, and colonized, often in the name of deterring (...)
