Abstract

In this essay, I expand on the notion that defining rhetoric in terms of persuasion promotes violence. I contend that the making of any kind of postcolonial world needs to begin with ending violence, beginning with the most insidious kinds of violence, such as the violence found in too much of our rhetorical and communicational practices. Integral to the making of any kind of postcolonial world needs to be the creation and propagation of a new rhetoric that discourages and delegitimises violence. In this essay, I discuss the beginnings of such a rhetoric and how we can begin to realise and promote such a rhetoric.
