ABSTRACT
A rhetorical interpretation of international relations and conflicts necessitates to take into consideration three main aspects of what anthropologist Mauss called "international life" cultural features that allow human groupings to argue with one another across borders. The first aspect concerns the instability of international glossaries to instrument diplomacy; the second aspect is the pre-conceived notion that peace, or non-conflicting "relation," is a normal state for arguing among nations; the third aspect pertains to the belief that, owing to globalisation, the same modes of persuasion operate indiscriminately. The French Revolution provides an excellent illustration of all three aspects.
