Rhetorik Der Verunsicherung : Affekt-strategien in Den Platonischen Frühdialogen (Hardcover)
about this item
It has often been remarked that the Platonic Socrates seems to be using a particular rhetoric. The aim of this specific rhetoric has been described as irritating or ‘destabilising’. However, little attention has been given to the techniques and elements of his rhetoric. The work focuses on the early dialogues of Plato, since they provide rich material for Socrates’ irritating rhetoric and depict him using an ample range of different strategies.
