ABSTRACT
This article reveals a new face of the art of rhetoric, which helps to better understand its profound value, but also its power--and therefore, the passion, envy, and interest it continues to generate. My purpose is to relate the practice of speech in its argumentative dimension to the exercise of political freedom. This practice will be seen as a way to free oneself and awaken one's conscience by taking the risk of leaving evidence and certainties behind. Rhetoric is not only the art of speaking well, and speaking eloquently to persuade: it represents, above all, a certain way of thinking, a journey, a liberating path that we must, I believe, explore anew.
