Plato's Gorgias & Aristotle's Rhetoric

by

Plato's Gorgias & Aristotle's Rhetoric Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This text contains English translations of Gorgias and Rhetoric, which, by juxtaposing the two texts, creates an interesting “conversation” is illuminated one which students of philosophy and rhetoric will find key in their analytical pursuits. If in the Gorgias Plato probes the question of what is problematic in rhetoric, in Rhetoric, Aristotle's response to Plato continues the thread by looking at what makes rhetoric useful. This text also includes an outstanding introductory essay.

Focus Philosophical Library translations are close to and are non-interpretative of the original text, with the notes and a glossary intending to provide the reader with some sense of the terms and the concepts as they were understood by Aristotle and Plato’s immediate audience.
