Aristotle on Rhetoric
In Gorgias, Plato argues that rhetoric is a knack, and not a techne or true art. In Rhetoric, Aristotle argues that rhetoric is a techne. Explain why Aristotle takes this position. If rhetoric is a true art, what does the art allow one to accomplish, and about what sorts of things does it instruct one?
Aristotle claimed that the art of rhetoric was built on a type of argument he termed the enthymeme. He also held that rhetoric involved the study of three artistic proofs, and that rhetoric could be divided into three general categories according to the settings in which it occurred and the issues that it addressed. Explain Aristotle’s understanding of the enthymeme. What distinguishes an enthymeme from other sorts of arguments, such as the syllogism of dialectic? Identify and briefly describe Aristotle’s three artistic proofs. What are the various types of settings, and the kinds of issues with which each deals?
Plato defined rhetoric at one point as “the art of influencing the soul through words,” while his student Aristotle defined the same art as “the faculty of observing in any given case the available means of persuasion.” Identify and explain the common concerns and the major differences of Plato and Aristotle regarding the art of rhetoric.
Aristotle defines rhetoric as “the counterpart of dialectic,” and later as “the faculty of discovering in any situation the available means of persuasion.” Expand on his apparent meaning in each of these definitions.
