Abstract

In order to better determine the conceptual space in which rhetoric could emerge, I use the Foucauldian notion of ‘dispositive’. In this way, rhetoric, even before being a technique, can be considered as one of the theoretical perspectives from which, at its origins, the Western tradition addressed the problematic relationship between power and knowledge. Starting from the Foucauldian interpretation of Oedipus Rex, I try to outline part of the context within which the rhetorical perspective found its original place.
