Examples

  • Yes, Menexenus; but will not that be a monstrous answer? and will not the all-wise eristics be down upon us in triumph, and ask, fairly enough, whether love is not the very opposite of hate; and what answer shall we make to them — must we not admit that they speak the truth?

    Lysis; or Friendship

  • (Take as an example the introduction to the Helen of Isocrates-there is nothing in common between the ‘eristics’ and Helen.)

    Rhetoric

  • Yes, Menexenus; but will not that be a monstrous answer? and will not the all-wise eristics be down upon us in triumph, and ask, fairly enough, whether love is not the very opposite of hate; and what answer shall we make to them -- must we not admit that they speak the truth?
