Summary

Plato's Gorgias contains a classical attack on rhetoric and Aristotle's Rhetoric is a classical defense of it. This pairing of the two books in one volume allows the reader to enter into a philosophic exchange of unusual depth. Complete with a thorough introduction and designed to emphasize the illumination each work sheds on the other, translator Joe Sachs argues that the two texts constitute a complex conversation rather than a mere opposition. The relation between the thinking of Plato and Aristotle can be understood directly through the study of this highly focused exchange. Book jacket.
