Analiza chwytów erystycznych w trzech dialogach Platona: Protagorasie, Gorgiaszu i Teajtecie
MetadataShow full item record
Dialogues by Plato are utterly unique works, combining the sophistication of speculative thought with true art of rhetoric. Thus it should come as no surprise that Dialogues have been a subject of numerous dissertations by various researchers. Obviously, theses on Dialogues were mainly aimed at examining the philosophical thought of Plato and recognising its influence on later works by his spiritual successors as well as his opponents. Attractive to a potential audience, the liveliness and authenticity of the disputes led by colourful debaters are engendered not only by the curious questions touched upon in Plato's works, but also by a reason which proves quite unusual for philosophical texts. Namely, the eristic aspect of arguments presented by disputants – the aspect which has become the very basis of my doctoral thesis. The actual goal of conducting an analysis of Plato's Dialogues, i.e. Protagoras, Gorgias and Theaetetus, is to find in them something which could elude the standard analysis of a philosophical publication. The submitted dissertation consists of an introduction, four chapters, a conclusion, which also serves as a summary, and a list of references.
