The Byzantine Turks, 1204-1461

If convention or law nomos rules, it is inscribed and grounded in nature. What seems better and so is better encomio di elena isocrate to seem right and so to be right—for as long as the new valuation holds.

Once more cast into encomio di elena isocrate loosely Aristotelian idiom: Politics is the art of enabling a city to evolve into an in this way inter-subjectively more favourable situation by modifying its legal conceptions.

The politician is the person who has learned how to bring about such a change for the better.

The Byzantine Turks,

The sophist is the one who knows how to bring it about and who teaches others how to do this. In the natural habitat for the skill of arguing both sides of a question that is offered by two-faced arguments dissoi logoiProtagoras might be charged with an overly innocent faith in the power of the clash of opinions encomio di elena isocrate generate a truth of sorts, but Protagoras holds that excesses and aberrations can and should be prevented by encomio di elena isocrate the free play of debate in an educational context that gives to natural endowment, to learning or art, and to practice each their due.

A few interrelated suggestions may be offered in a non-judgemental or pre-judgemental vein. Let this feed into an embryonic, minimalist version of internal realism: In encomio di elena isocrate it may not have been very easy to disentangle his techniques or hints of technique from the samples of wisdom and lore in which they were exemplified.

Protagoras may well have been one of those teachers who supplied a none too rich mixture of formal instruction encomio di elena isocrate with a liberal helping, or should one say a good measure, of memorable and memorizable content: Protagoras, I suggest, needed a Plato, and was on the whole lucky that he got the one he got—and we are lucky that he did.

Isocrate (? av. J.-C.)

And thirdly, as encomio di elena isocrate point of method, while we do well to remember how little there is that we can positively establish with regard to the historical Protagoras, I submit that we should not be encomio di elena isocrate squeamish, inhibited or apologetic about resorting to a form of eikos argumentation in our own reconstruction or reinvention of a philosophically interesting Protagoras.

Our duty is to disregard no evidence that could refute our proposals; not, to cling anxiously to what little evidence there might be found to confirm them.


It is in this way that bold but controlled speculation by the joint efforts of philosophers and philological scholars can be expected to yield results— not certain results but defensible results—that reward the efforts of both parties and command the attention of third parties.

We should assist Encomio di elena isocrate, or compete with him, in constructing the most exciting Protagoras our encomio di elena isocrate will tolerate.

This applies to the world view not of the shady historical Protagoras of the scant early sources, nor to that of the stereotypical straw dog set up by Plato and more high-handedly and schematically by Aristotle for their periodic bouts of sophist-bashing, but to that of Protagoras the reformed character as revised by Plato.

Is Protagoras the First Sophist?


Question about Protagoras What is Protagoras? Is he a sophist? If so, what does that mean?

This question is not an easy one to answer, first encomio di elena isocrate all because hardly anything of his writings has survived. Moreover, when we ask whether Protagoras is a sophist, we may encomio di elena isocrate be seeing him within the Platonic framework, which presupposes a strict dissociation of the philosopher and the sophist.

I aim to shed new light on this question from the sources outside Plato. For this reason Plato severely criticizes him as the first sophist.

One may wonder if it matters whether Protagoras was a sophist or a philosopher.

Modern scholarship offers divergent views on the sophistic movement. The sophists are bitterly condemned as amoralists in respect of relativism and atheism. I have collected some testimonies mentioning Protagoras or his thesis, from the 5th century bc to the Byzantine encomio di elena isocrate.
