Abstract

One of the most significant areas of debate within the Platonic dialogues has been Plato's conception of rhetoric. This area of interpretation has been so vast and varied that it is hard to believe that everyone has been analyzing the same dialogues. However, one view has predominated, and that is the view that Plato, as seen primarily in the Gorgias and the Phaedrus, disapproved of rhetoric and writing and has historically been its fiercest opponent.
