Example text

We will see in Thucydides’ portrayal of the Mytilinean Debate how these problems can distort the deliberative process. Thucydides’ Pericles is often regarded as constructing an ideal of anti-demagogic oratory. 2003 5:57pm page 29 29 of a rational calculation of policy from a long-term perspective, and a character of absolute integrity so as to lend one’s arguments greater persuasive force. All of Thucydides’ several exemplars of this ideal also display extraordinary intelligence and foresight. Here we find foreshadowed a question that will preoccupy many of the great writers in the rhetorical tradition, namely: What are the necessary qualities of the great orator?

But at the same time, as he has Diodotus argue, he is well aware that a self-governing political community (unlike a tyranny) has no other choice but to employ persuasive discourse because the logos (word, speech, argument, discourse, reason) is the only medium by which human beings can wisely govern a well-ordered political community. Those, like Sthenelaidas and Cleon, who want to co-opt the deliberative process for their own ends will seek to attack this very premise.

He does not, like Thucydides or Aristotle, focus his criticism on demagogues, but on all orators, politicians, and teachers of rhetoric. What is sometimes overlooked in discussion of Plato’s treatment of rhetoric in Gorgias is that he not only decries oratory, but also denounces the very deliberative process itself and the context of democratic politics within which it operates. For this reason he dismisses even Athens’ most revered statesmen, like Pericles and Themistocles, as mere panderers to the mob.
