    Nietzsche’s Rhetoric: Dissonance and Reception.Simon Lambek - 2020 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 25 (1):57-80.
    This article presents a reading of Nietzsche’s use of rhetoric as inseparable from his philosophical project. I provide an exegesis of Nietzsche’s own reflections on rhetoric and consider its actual deployment, arguing that Nietzsche’s rhetoric is often deliberately dissonant and oriented toward facilitating receptive effects.
