In the past, researches often make great emphasis on external characteristics of public sphere, such as rational attitudes and truthful contents. However, these can not explain “why doesn’t communication produce persuasion?” This question is the main problematic in this research paper. With analysis of how to make public persuasion work better, this research is meant to construct a “theory of intimacy,” which is based on intersubjectivity by J. Habermas, inter-referring by C. Taylor, imagination by H. Arendt, and sensus communis by G. Vico.
Based on rhetoric theory of neo-Aristotelian criticism, this study contains analysis of “theory of emigration” with external rhetoric strategy and internal argumentative structure. The rhetoric strategy of “theory of emigration” is a logic/public, denial/victim, and bolstering/transcendence. The communication quality in this issue was rational but not reasonable. First, it does not include the communicative rationality. Second, it contradicts common consensus of listeners because of the lack of imagination and sensus communis. Naturally, instead of making persuasion, it aroused serious conflicts and protests.
The conclusion is: if a speaker would like to search for the audience’s feelings and recognition with speech, rationality is not enough. To induce the subjective impartiality and to make the audience take actions, the speaker must develop effective communication skills, such as using imagination and sensus communis.
