BADENES, Andrés. Dialectical and Rhetorical Dimensions of the Argumentation in Plato's Gorgias. Circe clás. mod. [online]. 2004, n.9, pp. 55-72. ISSN 1851-1724.
The study of the rhetorical dimension of the argumentation in the platonic dialogues bears the problem of Plato's own position on the rhetoric as soon as téchne. Beyond the epistemological and ethical perspectives is interesting to rake certain resources that show the rhetorical devices in the context of the called Socratic dialogue. In this work I intend to investigate on a specific argument, the argumentum ad consequentiam, with the purpose of detecting the rhetorical dimension of the argument in Plato's Gorgias. In this respect I will recapture an element characteristic of the platonic theory on the speech, the parresía, in way of elaborating a differentiating element among the rhetorical and dialectical dimensions in order to evaluate the intervention of these two aspects in the construction of the speech.
