Abstract:This essay deals with the relationship between rhetoric and anthropology, along three main lines of argument. The author offers reflections on the relationship between the two fields, highlighting contentious intersections, as in the case of the French anthropological tradition. He proposes to weigh the rhetorical definition of 'figure' or 'trope', and to revisit these rhetorical concepts. In an attempt to show how rhetoric engages with a seemingly non-rhetorical, social practice, he then turns to a case of social performance, drawn from South Africa's reconciliation process. It concerns that of perpetrators of human rights abuses in South Africa. Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
