Ideology, Rhetoric, Aesthetics

Andrzej Warminski

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter presents a detailed exposition of de Man's project in Aesthetic Ideology and how it relates to the rhetorical readings in his Allegories of Reading. It ends with a reading of de Man's Pascal essay (in particular his difficult account of the zero) as an example of what it means to read ‘from the point of view of the quadrivium’ and as an anticipation of de Man's essays on Kant and Hegel.

Keywords:   Paul de Man, aesthetic ideology, Allegories of Reading
