    Some Uses of Paronomasia in Old English Scriptural Verse.Roberta Frank - 1972 - Speculum 47 (2):207-226.
    It is remarkable how many episodes from the annals of early British history owe their preservation in popular tradition to the wit and playfulness of the words in which they were recorded. Thanks to a quip uttered by a post-Conquest wag on discrepancies between a royal name and royal deeds, posterity was made permanently aware of the disastrous reign of Ethelred the Unready. And everyone knows what happened when Gregory the Great saw some English boys in the marketplace and started (...)

    Jacob’s Ladder: Logics of Magic, Metaphor and Metaphysics: Narratives of the Unconscious, the Self, and the Assembly.Julio Michael Stern - 2020 - Sophia 59 (2):365-385.
    In this article, we discuss some issues concerning magical thinking—forms of thought and association mechanisms characteristic of early stages of mental development. We also examine good reasons for having an ambivalent attitude concerning the later permanence in life of these archaic forms of association, and the coexistence of such intuitive but informal thinking with logical and rigorous reasoning. At the one hand, magical thinking seems to serve the creative mind, working as a natural vehicle for new ideas and innovative insights, (...)

    Sur la Tête de Gorgias. Le “Parler Beau” Et le “Dire Vrai” Dans Le Banquet de Platon.Henri Joly - 1990 - Argumentation 4 (1):5-33.
    Rhetoric is at present the object of a rehabilitation on a grand scale, all the more as it overlaps the fields of literature, linguistics, and philosophy. Actually, if philosophy rejects and removes rhetoric, it is nevertheless, as a method of word, wholly impregnated with it. To investigate the complex relationship of mutual implication in which rhetoric and philosophy are involved is part and parcel of this plan of re-evaluation of rhetoric as “discourse art” with a view to a re-definition of (...)

    Cassiopeia's Dust.Ron Louie - 2021 - Philosophy and Literature 45 (1):253-254.
    [A dilettante admires a constellation from a hot tub, and considers it the next day. Is it a prose poem, creative nonfiction, or "light" verse; phenomenology, astrophysics, metaphysics, or half-lit paronomasia?]A photon hit my retina. Again, again; others also hit. The sensation seemed continuous, albeit twinkling, rather than as discrete and separated points. It was like dust, but I didn't blink.It came from a thing I would call bright, in front of me, over my head, on a dark night; (...)
