Information and Persuasion

Studies in Linguistics, Literature, Culture, and Discourse Analysis

Edited By Maria-Ionela Neagu and Domnita Tomescu

This transdisciplinary study gathers research papers that reveal the multifarious facets of the concept of «persuasion». It is argued that regardless of its degree of intentionality, the act of persuasion underlying each information item prompts the interlocutors to cross the borders of political, historical, linguistic, narrative, psychotherapeutic, and even marketing configurations. The contributors’ contention is that political thinking and ideology-grounded linguistic patterns act as a form of social control, both informing and shaping the sense of identity of the manipulated masses and of the oppressed.

«Taking a sociolinguistic turn, this volume of interesting scholarly works addresses matters of ideological loadings in a variety of genres, contributing to the development of new research paradigms.» – Bledar Toska, University of Vlora «Ismail Qemali»

Dramaturgies de la persuasion dans le theatre français des xviie et xviiie siecles

Abstract: This paper concentrates upon the representation of the process of persuasion in the French plays of the 17th and 18th century.

Cet article explore la représentation du processus de persuasion dans le théâtre français des XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles. Sur la base d’un corpus de plus de 400 pièces, et utilisant des méthodes des humanités numériques ainsi que des études traditionnelles de lettres, il extrait et analyse, d’une part, quelques éléments du vocabulaire de la persuasion, tel qu’utilisé dans les pièces, et dégage, d’autre part, trois types de persuasion qui sont représentés de manière récurrente dans le corpus.

1.  Introduction

Mise sur la sellette comme divertissement pernicieux, la comédie des siècles classiques a trouvé à se défendre en soulignant sa vocation moralisatrice. Sans renier sa visée premièrement esthétique, elle fait du plaisir non seulement...
