The Promise Reason: Noemi Perelman Mattis

The Promise Reason: Noemi Perelman Mattis

The UO held an international conference on The Promise of Reason to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the influential book The New Rhetoric by Chaim Perelman and Lucie Olbrechts-Tyteca. In this banquet address delivered on May 17, 2008, “Chaim Perelman: A Life Well-Lived,” Perelman’s daughter Noemi Mattis offers an oral history describing Perelman’s life and experiences in the Belgian underground during WWII, his work with Olbrechts-Tyteca, and how these influenced his philosophy of argumentation.
