Abstract

This project works to define a visceral mode of reasoning in relation to Gilbert’s (1997) system of argumentation and evaluates whether or not the body is always implicated in discourse. Kennedy’s announcement of King’s assassination will illustrate how a transgression of subjectivity was met by a momentary suspension of racialized terms of the day. The racialized body allows examination into the excess of the argument or that which lies beyond the words.

The Invisible Argument: Recognizing race through visceral reasoning

University of Windsor

This project works to define a visceral mode of reasoning in relation to Gilbert’s (1997) system of argumentation and evaluates whether or not the body is always implicated in discourse. Kennedy’s announcement of King’s assassination will illustrate how a transgression of subjectivity was met by a momentary suspension of racialized terms of the day. The racialized body allows examination into the excess of the argument or that which lies beyond the words.
